South Sister Medical Issue Prompts SAR Op.

SISTERS, OR -- An Idaho woman suffered a medical condition while hiking South Sister, Friday evening.


Deschutes County Search and Rescue deployed a team to the area, with a wheeled litter and other equipment, in case the 37-year-old woman wasn’t able to continue down the mountain. Life Flight was also initially dispatched. However, by the time the SAR team met with the woman on the trail, she was feeling better and able to hike to the Devil’s Lake Trail Head under her own power, with her group of 15 other hikers from Idaho.
