CORBETT, Ore. (AP) — A Portland man died while hiking in the Oneonta Gorge near Corbett.

The Multnomah County sheriff's office says 22-year-old Hassan Roussi was hiking with three friends Wednesday when he left the trail and climbed on a log jam.

Spokeswoman Mary Lindstrand told The Oregonian he slipped and fell into the creek, striking his head.
