Washington man falls 100 feet into Imnaha river

Yesterday afternoon a forklift  driven by a Washington man fell 100 feet into the Imnaha River a half mile upriver from the Gumboot Weir.

The driver of the 10,000 lb. Caterpillar forklift was doing electrical line work for Idaho Power.

Wallowa County Sheriff’s Deputy Paul Pagano said the man was helped up to the road by his co-workers, driven to Lick Creek where an ambulance transported him to a helicopter on Salt Creek Summit. The driver was then flown to a Lewiston hospital.

The forklift remains in the river and Pagano said there is an on-going effort to remove it. No fluids are leaking from the forklift into the river at this time.

Pagano said the sheriff’s office, Oregon State Police, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the U.S. Forest Service and Nez Perce Fisheries Personnel all assisted in the rescue.
