Four rescued by emergency personnel from Enumclaw ravine

Four people were rescued from below the Kummer Bridge off of the Enumclaw-Black Diamond Highway in rural SE King County, Tuesday, Aug. 1.

The four took a tumble from an estimated height of 15 feet. The two teenagers and two adults suffered only minor injuries.

Rescue teams from Enumclaw, Port of Seattle, Puget Sound Fire, Renton Regional Fire Authority, Valley Regional Fire Authority, Tukwila Fire, South King Fire and Rescue and King County Medic One all worked to safely extricate the four from the ravine.

The steep, heavily vegetated terrain made the task especially difficult.
