Portland man injured BASE jumping off Randle Tower Rock

The Associated Press

RANDLE, Lewis County — A 38-year-old Portland man was injured BASE jumping off 3,300-foot Tower Rock in Randle.

The Lewis County sheriff’s office says two friends successfully made the jump Monday before the man hit the rock wall several times before his parachute fully deployed.

He suffered multiple broken bones in his legs.

He was picked up by a Navy helicopter from Whidbey Island Naval Air Station and transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition.
