ORIGINAL POST | A hiker has fallen 20 feet while rock climbing outside North Bend, and the King County Sherff’s Office and Eastside Fire & Rescue are working to rescue her.

BJ Myers, spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office says the 23-year-old is about half way up the Little Si trail and has injuries on her lower leg and head. The severity of the woman’s injuries isn’t known at this time, Myers said, but the effort is being treated as an Advanced Life Support (ALS) rescue in case the woman is badly hurt.

While the rescue is under way, probably about an hour, Myers said, the trailhead of Little Si is closed.
