BEND, OR -- A highly-technical rescue had to be performed in Bend last night to recover a man who fell off a cliff near Rippling River Court. About 1 a.m. a neighbor heard a man yelling for help from the canyon across the river. After calling 9-1-1 the neighbor then found the victim and directed police to his location. It turns out, the 29-year-old man, from Ohio, fell about 40 feet while trying to scale the near sheer canyon wall at night. A tourniquet was used on his injuries while rescuers worked to extricate him from the canyon and take him to the hospital.
