SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- Rescue crews in the Oregon mountains saved a hiker who got lost while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail in a snowstorm.
Robert Campbell, who is 50 and originally from the Philadelphia area, was found wet, cold and exhausted Friday in the only shelter he could find -- a pit toilet in a closed campground.
Campbell credited the Marion County Sheriff's Office with saving his life, saying he could not have made it through another night. Heavy snow was forecast through Saturday evening in the Cascade Range.
