A search team has found the body of 25-year-old snowboarder Collin Backowski who was killed after a tunnel he was snowboarding through collapsed on Oregon’s Mt. Hood.
Twelve people used chainsaws and other hand tools to dig his body out from under 8 to 10 feet of snow and ice. In total, they moved several tons of debris by hand, the sheriff’s office said.
Backowski, of Pines, Colorado, was part of a group with six other snowboarders.
He had gotten farther ahead of the group when the ice tunnel collapsed.
Two others were hit with debris but not hurt.
The group tried to dig Backowski out, but could not break through the ice and snow.
