SISTERS, OR -- Quick-thinking hikers near Three Creek Lake are credited with helping a 17-year-old who suffered a medical emergency on the Park Meadow Trail, Tuesday morning.

 

There were no witnesses to the incident. But, his mother and a separate hiking group, consisting of several off-duty medical professionals, took swift action. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says the group improvised a stretcher and were carrying him down the trail when they were met by a Search and Rescue team.

 

SAR evaluated the teen and called for LifeFlight. He was then flown to St. Charles Bend for further treatment.
