Intoxicated Patient in Salmon Canyon

At approximately 7:30 p.m., the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) requested PMR’s assistance in raising a patient from the bottom of Salmon Canyon below the Timberline Road. Apparently the subject was intoxicated and had tumbled into the canyon.

Rocky Henderson of PMR responded and assisted the Hoodland Fire Department, CCSO deputies and the AMR Reach and Treat team in packaging the patient in a litter and raising him several hundred feet up steep snow covered slopes to the road. The patient was loaded into a waiting ambulance by 11:00 p.m.
