The victim was 16-year-old Nolan Grant Henderson of Corvallis. KCSO said that they notified Henderson's family of his death early Saturday evening. The family then authorized authorities to release the teen's name on Monday.

INITIAL REPORT: A 16-year-old boy is dead and another injured after a fall on a Boy Scout Troop camping trip. The troop is from Corvallis. Authorities got the call on Saturday that two boys had been seriously injured from a fall in the remote area of Middle Rosary Lake in Northern Klamath County. Initial reports said the boys fell from a peak near the lake.

First responders and an Army National Guard helicopter medical team arrived and found the 16-year-old boy was already dead. They were able to rescue the other injured teen but his condition is not known. The remaining scouts hiked out of the area and Klamath County Search and Rescue members hiked into the peak near the lake to investigate. They are still on scene this morning. 

The name of the fall victims has not been released at this time.
