A man has actually been rescued after he plunged 800 feet into the crater of an inactive volcano in Oregon.

The United States coast guard got a call from the Crater Lake National Park service after he dropped near Rims Village.

An aircrew got here on the scene around 4: 28 pm on Monday, with a rope group currently 600 feet down the crater.

The group reported that they might hear a man shouting from even more down within.

A coast guard helicopter team was hovering above the hurt man within 15 minutes of showing up on the scene.

They then raised the man out of the crater prior to landing in a neighboring parking lot.

He was flown to the city of Bend in Oregon for treatment, the coast guard stated in a Facebook post.

His condition was not understood.
