ATV crash sends elderly man to the hospital by helicopter (Photo) - 01/25/23

Longview, WA- Firefighters from Cowlitz 2 Fire and Rescue and Cowlitz Fire District 5 rescued a 61-year-old male involved in an ATV accident in the 2000 block of Abernathy Creek Rd at 11:13 Wednesday morning.  The man was unreachable by emergency apparatus due to the terrain, so firefighters reached the man on foot and used ropes and a rescue basket to pull the man up to level ground.   Cowlitz Fire District 5 responded with their side-by-side ATV and coordinated a safe landing zone for a rescue helicopter.  The man was then flown, by Life flight Network, to Peace Health Southwest Medical Center where he is being treated for rib and hip injuries.  The man was wearing a helmet.  A medic unit, a fire engine, a Chief Officer, a side-by-side ATV, and two Cowlitz County Deputies responded to the incident.  No other injuries were reported.
