Deschutes County Search and Rescue volunteers were at Broken Top yesterday afternoon to help a woman who had fallen. Mary Ortman was coming down the trail near No Name Lake when she fell. A Sheriff's deputy was able to make phone contact with Ortmans group about 3 o'clock as they made a careful descent to get their friend to medics. After about 2 hours Ortman was met by the search party, treated for her injuries and taken to the Todd Lake trailhead in a wheeled litter to meet a waiting ambulance which took her to St. Charles hospital in Bend. Ortman sustained serious, but not life-threatening injuries.
