BEND, OR -- Two Bend men were rescued from near the Green Lakes Trail Head, Thursday afternoon, after a snowmobile crashed into Fall Creek.

 

The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office says 48-year-old Alan Valenti called 911 just before 2 p.m. to report his snowmobile had rolled on top of him. His riding partner, 44-year-old Joseph Virgilio, also received non-life threatening injuries trying to help Valenti.

 

A Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteer was recreating in the area and was the first to respond, helping to stabilize and warm the pair until more resources arrived about an hour later. They were taken to Dutchman Flat where Bend Fire medics took over. Virgilio was later taken to the hospital.
