On August 6, 2020 at approximately 10:59 AM, Deschutes County 911 received a call regarding an injured mountain bike rider on the Tiddlywinks Trail near Forest Service Road 4130 west of Bend. Due to the location of the injured rider, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office Special Services Unit responded with 2 Deputies and 13 Search and Rescue Volunteers.
When rescuers reached the rider, identified as Corina Davis of Seattle, Washington they evaluated her condition, stabilized her and prepared her for transport. Davis was carried by wheeled litter to a spur road, where she was transferred to a Sheriff’s Office four-wheel drive pickup. She was then driven to a waiting Bend Fire and Rescue Ambulance and transported to St. Charles Bend.
Due to the location, terrain, and lack of good road access the rescue took over 2 and a half hours. The Sheriff’s Office is also grateful for the assistance of two off-duty nurses who remained on scene with Davis until SAR medics arrived.
