BEND, OR -- A 31-year-old Redmond man was rescued at 8,100 feet on South Sister, Tuesday, after he was hurt in a fall.

 
Blake Ettestad was with hiking companions who called 911 at about 10 a.m. to report he was injured and needed help. Ettestad had fallen on some ice and slid down a steep incline into a tree.

 

Deschutes County Deputies, Search and Rescue Volunteers and Life Flight responded. They landed about 600 feet down from Ettestadt and volunteers skinned up the trail to his location, arriving just after 1 p-m. 


He was packaged into a rescue sled and carried down the trail to the helicopter, then taken to St Charles Bend with non-life threatening injuries.
