Woman Hiker Rescued From Broken Top

CENTRAL OREGON -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue teams were called around 7 o'clock Saturday night saying a 34-year-old woman from Beaverton who was hiking near Broken Top was "in trouble", beginning to lose consciousness and could not continue on her own. Two deputies and 9 volunteers responded. They drove up as far as the snowpack would allow, then some of the volunteers had to hike in.  It took them 5 and a half hours to reach the woman, who was able to walk down the mountain with assistance. She denied any further medical assistance once they reached Bend. It was later determined she had consumed intoxicants and that's why she couldn't make it down the mountain.
