Portland Fire & Rescue has released more details about a girl in her early teens who fell more than 40 feet off of a Rocky Butte cliff and suffered life-threatening injuries Friday night.

Rescuers say the girl was at the popular recreational area with friends when she fell. Rescuers arrived within minutes of receiving a 911 call from the area of the 9100 block of Northeast Fremont Street. At about 10:45 p.m., they used large, bright lights to find her.

They saw her moving near the base of the cliff. Two firefighters were lowered on ropes to the girl.

“Firefighters reported that she was in urgent need of evacuation and began treating her many injuries,” read a news release.

Firefighters secured her to a rescue litter and carried her about one-third of a mile to a waiting ambulance. She was rushed to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in North Portland.

No further information was available about the girl’s condition. Her name and age also weren’t available.

Firefighters are reminding the public that Rocky Butte and other rugged natural areas “can turn deadly in an instant.” Rescuers recommend sticking to established trails and obeying posted signs to steer clear of cliffs, especially at night when visibility is limited.
