Should the lost hikers on Mt. Hood be given a bill for there rescue?

If you go out fishing on thin ice and get stuck on a flow your charged for the helecopter ride off!

Update:

I think that if they are resued that they will be catapulted to near celebrity status....when public humiliation and appologies are in order

    Yes, definitely. Lives are at stake. Why should innocent people risk their very lives, when they too could get injured and lost.

    There are warning signs, news flashes, radios, but these hikers are pure ignorant!

    Absolutely. With all actions one must be responsible for the results. These people are adults. Not children. As such, they have sense, one would hope, to know the risks associated with their actions.

    Why one earth should the public pay for their arrogance and stupidity.

    Personal responsibility seems to be deteriorating in our society.

    I don`t think it`s anyones business and being the certified climbers they are of course theres always a risk Regardless of the time of year. Would you want to be rescued If you didnt have money?? They most likely are millionaires. Have insurance etc..Have sponsers..Bad question...who cares who pays lets get them down...

    Most definately.

    Why is it that few people answer an excellent question like this, yet when someone asks "How many bathrooms are in your house" 40 people jump on it.

    Every dime if they're found alive. And their estates if they're found in a popsicle state.

    Sorry, kids... no college for you, because daddy was stupid.
