Climber found dead in Mount St. Helens

A climber who fell into the crater of Mount St. Helens Monday was found dead Tuesday, said officials.

According to the LA TImes, Joseph Bohlig, 52, was posing for a picture Monday on the rim of the crater when the snow overhang he was standing on gave way.

The body was air lifted into Carson, Washington and then transported to the Clark County Medical Examiner's Office for autopsy, according to CNN.

County undersheriff David Cox said that Bohlig had climbed the volcano 68 times before the accident.
