BEND, OR -- A Bend woman was hurt and her elderly father killed, after the two went over Dillon Falls, Thursday afternoon. They were first spotted by a fly fisherman who reported to 911 that the two were being swept toward the falls in a canoe, at about 3:15 p.m. They were wearing life-jackets. 

 

At some point, the canoe tipped and they were unable to get to shore before going over the falls, southwest of Bend. Deschutes County Sheriff's Search and Rescue, Bend Fire and U.S. Forest Service law enforcement responded; but it was recreators who first got to the pair, pulling the unconscious man to shore and starting CPR. Emergency crews took over life-saving efforts when they arrived, but he was later pronounced dead at the scene. His daughter was taken to St. Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries. 
 
UPDATE: The Deschtutes County Sheriff's Office released the names of those involved, late Friday morning. They say 84-year-old Ronald Stevens, of Jackson, Wyoming, was killed; his 57-year-old daughter, Nancy Stevens was the woman hurt, Thursday afternoon.
