Woman Suffers Fatal Fall at Potholes Area in Camas - 07/18/18

At approximately 7 pm on July 18, Camas-Washougal Fire Department (CWFD) received a report of a female patient who had fallen in the "potholes" area below Lacamas Lake in Camas.  Responding personnel found an approximately 37 year old female patient who was deceased after suffering traumatic injuries.  The Clark County Technical Rescue team was requested for assistance in body recovery.  Recovery efforts were completely by approximately 10 pm.  CWFD was assisted by personnel from the Vancouver Fire Department, East County Fire and Rescue, and Clark County Fire District 6.  CWFD would like to remind citizens that the potholes area is not safe for recreation at any time of the year.  Swift water currents, cold water temperatures, and steep terrain, pose a constant threat. 

Further information concerning patient identity and cause of death will be under the authority of the Clark County Medical Examiner.
