PILCHUCK FALLS, Wash. – The Skagit County coroner’s office identifies a hiker and rescuer who died of injuries they suffered in a fall of more than 100 feet at Pilchuck Falls.

Deputy Coroner Matthew Sias identified the 25-year-old hiker as Peder Trettevik of Stanwood and the 62-year-old rescuer as J.B. Bryson of Sedro-Woolley.
