BEND, OR -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers were at Broken Top Sunday afternoon to help an injured woman.

 

Mary Ortman was coming down the trail near No Name Lake when she fell. A Sheriff's deputy was able to make phone contact with Ortman's group about 3:00 as they made a careful descent to get their friend to medics.

 

After about 2 hours Ortman was met by the search party, treated for her injuries and taken to the Todd Lake trailhead in a wheeled litter to meet a waiting ambulance which took her to St. Charles hospital in Bend.

 

Ortman sustained serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
