The troop had been hiking in the Olympic National Forest, a remote area about 40 miles north of Shelton, Washington. According to Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy Joe Nole, the boys were trying to roll a large log into a lake when the victim's jacket got stuck to the trunk. The log rolled over the boy, causing him to suffer a deadly head injury.

The Sheriff's Deputy says it took search and rescue teams about three hours to reach the scene by foot as bad weather prevented officials from sending a helicopter airlift.

The victim's father was among the four adults and ten scouts on the trip.
