Just after 3:00 AM this morning Local 1159 members from Estacada Fire District along with Clackamas County Sheriff's Office responded to a report of a 30 year old patient who fell approximately 60 feet off a cliff near mile post 24 on Highway 224.

Due to the steep terrain, poor visibility and cold temperatures, this incident was upgraded, and Local 1159 members from Clackamas Fire technical rescue team were required to perform the rescue.

Resources, equipment and highly trained personnel from other jurisdictions were required due to the type of rescue. This incident utilized eight fire units and 20 personnel and took 3 ½ hours to execute the rescue.

Due to the severity of injuries, the patient was transported by Life Flight Network to a Portland trauma center.
