BLUE RIVER, Ore. -- A mother and child required a technical rescue by Lane County Search and Rescue on Wednesday afternoon.

Sgt. Carrie Carver said LCSO Search and Rescue responded to a mother and 7-year-old child who were down what they described as a 40-foot cliff at the Blue River Dam.

The 7-year-old child who fell is being transported via helicopter for medical treatment. The mother is being transported to the hospital in an ambulance.

Scanner traffic indicated that the 7-year-old child fell down a steep embankment and when the child’s mother tried to rescue the child, she also fell down the embankment.
