Manteca Bulletin - - Nation -

LA GRANDE, Ore. (AP) — An Ore­gon hunter who fell out of his tree stand and got tan­gled in his safety har­ness has been res­cued af­ter hang­ing up­side-down for two days about 30 feet (9 me­ters) from the ground.

The Union County Sher­iff’s Depart­ment says Thurs­day another hunter found the man and drove to a nearby high­way to get cell­phone re­cep­tion to call 911.

Res­cuers used a bucket truck and lad­der to reach him.

The La Grande Ob­server re­ports that the man’s heart stopped beat­ing about half­way through the res­cue be­cause blood flow that had been cut off to his lower body was sud­denly re­stored.

Res­cuers were pre­pared for that pos­si­bil­ity and had es­tab­lished a land­ing zone for a he­li­copter to air­lift him to a lo­cal hospi­tal.

2 IN CAR DEAD AF­TER HIT­TING SCHOOL BUS IN NORTH MIS­SIS­SIPPI: SENATOBIA, Miss. (AP) — Two north Mis­sis­sippi res­i­dents are dead af­ter their car hit a school bus.

WHBQ-TV re­ports that Dar­rell Sayles and Tara Davis died Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon when they hit the bus on Mis­sis­sippi High­way 4 west of Senatobia. Both are said to be from DeSoto County, but no ages or cities of res­i­dence have been re­leased.
