Response to August 2004 Accidents/Rescues


A National Guard helicopter took an injured climber from Mount Washington Saturday and ferried him to Salem Memorial Hospital, Linn County Sheriff Dave Burright reported.

John Manotti, 42, of Eugene, fell and injured an ankle when he and his wife, Lisa, were at about 7,000 feet on the mountain in east Linn County, the sheriff said.

Mrs. Manotti called the sheriff's office at about 11 a.m., and rescue teams from Jefferson and Linn counties responded, along with the Corvallis Mountain Rescue Unit.

The 1042nd Medical Co. (Air Ambulance) of the Oregon National Guard sent a helicopter. The chopper took Manotti to the Salem hospital, where he was treated.
