TERREBONNE, OR -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue (SAR) was called in to help a hiker injured at Smith Rock State Park, Tuesday morning. The 27-year-old Bend woman fell while hiking at Misery Ridge and was not able to walk out under her own power. 

 

Ten SAR volunteers and one deputy responded to Cassie Mendoza’s location at the base of Monkey Face, just before noon. They brought her down the trail in a wheeled litter, then across the river via inflatable raft. Mendoza refused any further medical help and was taken to her car. 

 
The Sheriff's office says she was hiking alone and fortunate others came upon her quickly to help until units arrived.
