SEATTLE – Coast Guard crews medevaced a teenager Thursday evening from a western Oregon forest.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector North Bend command center were notified at 4:15 p.m. by Curry County dispatch that a 17-year-old male had suffered a head injury after he fell from a cliff above the Rogue River near Marial, Oregon.

Because the area was inaccessible by vehicle, the command center launched an MH-65 helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station North Bend.

The aircrew arrived on scene at 5:45 p.m. and landed near Paradise Lodge. The rescue crew put the injured teen on a stretcher and carried him to the helicopter.

The aircraft touched down at 7:15 p.m. at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center, where the person was transferred to medical personnel.

The patient’s current medical condition is unknown.
