TERREBONNE, OR -- An Aumsville, Oregon man was injured in a fall at Smith Rock State Park. Witnesses say the 18-year-old was hiking Misery Ridge with his family, Monday afternoon, when he lost consciousness and fell more than 100 feet.
Over a dozen members of the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue team responded to the park, just after 1 p.m. They hiked about a half mile from the trailhead and began treating the teen for non-life threatening injuries. He was wheeled down the steep trail and taken to the hospital.
The Sheriff's office says it's possible the victim experienced a form of heat exhaustion due to the warm weather, which caused him to pass out.
