Man airlifted to hospital after falling from West Linn building
A man was transferred by Life Flight to a local hospital Tuesday, July 20, after falling multiple stories from a building near Fields Bridge Park.
According to Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue spokeswoman Megan Rye, the man fell from a height of between two and three stories and suffered serious injuries.
"I can't really say if they were life-threatening," Rye said, adding that there was no information on how he fell.
The incident occurred around 1 p.m. Tuesday at a building near Willamette Falls Drive and Ostman Road. An ambulance transported the man to Fields Bridge Park, where TVF&R and West Linn police officers helped clear a landing path for the Life Flight helicopter.
