Logging accident southeast of Eddyville – severed leg, helicopter rescue

2:30pm

A logger has been severely injured at a logging operation high in the coast range near Harlan and a rescue helicopter is just now arriving on scene to try to pick him up and fly him to a trauma center.

Reports from the scene indicates that some kind of accident occurred during which a logger lost one of his legs.  The term “rigging” was used to describe the victim’s immediate surroundings at the time of the accident.

3:04pm

Chopper still trying to find a safe enough place to land.  Sounds like they found a spot.

3:19pm

REACH chopper cannot access the site.  Calling in the Coast Guard with extra equipment, including a rescue basket.  The Coast Guard helo can hover from a high elevation, drop the basket, have the victim strapped in, and then hoist him up to the helo – then make a B-line to a trauma center.

6:30pm
Apparently the Coast Guard couldn’t make it. Finally got the guy into an ambulance and met REACH out of Corvallis at a spot near Highway 20. NOW the victim is enroute to a trauma center in Portland.
