BEND, OR -- A southern Oregon woman was hurt in a fall near Tumalo Falls, Saturday afternoon. The Sheriff’s Office says a hiking party went off the marked trail onto a side trail blocked by multiple downed trees. While trying to navigate a narrow section, 57-year-old Elizabeth Wright, of Jacksonville, fell about 20 feet down a steep embankment. 
 
A Sheriff's Deputy was first on-scene and, with the help of a citizen,  lowered an anchored stabilizing rope to prevent her from falling farther. Deschutes County Search and Rescue responded and Mountain Rescue volunteers lowered themselves to her location and brought her back up to the trail.
 
Due to her injuries, she was wheeled out to her vehicle and waiting family; she refused further medical attention.
