Injured Snowmobiler Rescued

LA PINE, OR -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue was dispatched to an injured snowmobile rider at Paulina Lake, Sunday morning. Initial calls to 911 reported 63-year-old Debbie Baldwin had struck a tree and was unconscious. La Pine medics were unable to reach the area due to deep snow.

 

A six-member SAR team snowmobiled into the site and transported Baldwin back to the 10 Mile Snow Park where medics picked her up and took her to St. Charles Medical Center. The woman suffered unspecified injuries, but officials say she was wearing appropriate safety gear.

 

Witnesses say Baldwin was trying to execute a side hill turn, accelerated and struck a group of trees on the downhill side.
