A man has been rescued after he plunged 800ft into the crater of a dormant volcano in Oregon.
The US coast guard received a call from the Crater Lake National Park service after he fell down near Rims Village.
An aircrew arrived on the scene around 4:28pm on Monday, with a rope team already 600ft down the crater.
The team reported that they could hear a man yelling from further down inside.
A coast guard helicopter crew was hovering above the injured man within 15 minutes of arriving on the scene.
They then hoisted the man out of the crater before landing in a nearby car park.
He was flown to the city of Bend in Oregon for treatment, the coast guard said in a Facebook post.
His condition was not known.
