BEND, OR -- A Salem man was hurt while hiking the South Sisters climber’s trail, Saturday afternoon, prompting a response by Deschutes County Search and Rescue. The 47-year-old man reportedly re-injured a previous injury and wasn’t able to continue on the trail, despite help from a friend.

 

A dozen SAR volunteers hiked three miles from the Devil’s Lake trailhead to meet up with the man, loaded him into a wheeled litter and transported him back to the trailhead, where he opted to seek medical attention at a later time.
