A 16-year old girl from the west side is in a Seattle hospital Thursday morning after being rescued off White Pass by helicopter Wednesday.

The Naches Fire Department was called to the area of Clear Lake about 4 o'clock Wednesday afternoon to check on a hiker who had become ill. She was near the summit of White Pass and her condition was getting worse. A Life Flight helicopter and the Yakima Tech Rescue Team were also called.

The teen, who was hiking with a church group, was airlifted off the mountain and taken to Harborview Medical Center. Her condition is unknown.
