Man rescued from Dougan Falls

A man swimming at Dougan Falls on the upper Washougal River got trapped in the falls.  His leg got stuck between underwater rocks and the force of the water kept him from pulling his leg free.

The Skamania County Technical Rescue Team rigged a system of ropes to pull the man up river, so he could get his leg free.  He was placed on a stretcher and taken to a hospital with hypothermia and minor injuries.
