Bend Woman Rescued From Misery Ridge

REDMOND, OR -- A group of Deschutes County Search and Rescue members training at Smith Rock State Park were deployed to help an injured hiker at Misery Ridge, Sunday. The 71-year old Bend woman reportedly slipped on loose rock above Monkey Face, just before 10:30 a.m., and wasn't able to continue down the trail. 

 

Six Search and rescue team members joined the 7 already at the park for training, and located the woman. They packaged her onto a wheeled litter and brought her down the rugged trail to awaiting medics. She was taken to St. Charles Redmond with minor injuries.
