CROOKED RIVER RANCH, OR -- A 16-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries at Crooked River Ranch Tuesday evening, when he fell 40 to 50 feet down a cliff.

 

Captain Sean Hartley, with Crooked River Ranch Fire and Rescue, says it took nearly two hours to bring the teen up.
 
We used a high-angle rope rescue system to remove him from the canyon safely. Then, he was flown by LifeFlight helicopter to St. Charles Bend. Later Tuesday evening, he was taken to Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland."
 
Capt. Hartley says the teen apparently fell while trying to retrieve a dropped cell phone.
