SISTERS, OR -- A Texas woman suffered a medical emergency while hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, prompting a Deschutes County Search and Rescue operation, Tuesday afternoon.

 

A fellow hiker called for help after the 49-year-old woman could no longer continue on the trail, near the Dee Wright Observatory, west of Sisters. It took several hours for rescue teams to reach and assess the patient and wheel her down the narrow trail. 
 
She was then taken to a Life Flight helicopter waiting on Highway 242 and flown to St. Charles Medical Center.
