South Sister Rescue Takes a Turn for the Bizarre

Posted By on Wed, Sep 14, 2011 at 2:00 AM

A search and rescue operation on South Sister took a turn for the strange on Tuesday morning when a disoriented and dehydrated hiker had to be Tazed and subdued after he assaulted rescue workers near Moraine Lake in the High Country.

Sheriff’s deputies said Duncan Tyler Maring, 24 of Bend, was acting strange and in need of medical assistance when rescue workers arrived around 7:15 this morning. However, he was incoherent and aggressive when rescue workers came to his aid and became aggressive, picking nurses from the Air Link flight who first contacted Maring. According to a press release from the Sheriff’s office, the SAR team decided against airlifting Maring off the mountain because of his aggressive behavior. Instead he was transported out with a wheeled “litter” from the Devils Lake trailhead. Maring was brought to St. Charles and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Maring was not arrested, however, sheriff’s deputies referred the incident to the Deschutes County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
