Sonoma Sheriff Rescues Boy
On February 20 we received from the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office a very harrowing announcement. The notice stated:
Sonoma County Deputy rescues a boy who fell down The Sea Ranch cliffs. The dramatic coastal rescue of a 6-year-old injured child who fell on rocks at the Sea Ranch that morning came in shortly after 9:00 AM. He and his sister his 9-year-old sister were hiking alone on the bluff trail. The boy had slipped and fallen about 20 feet down a rocky ledge and suffered a head and an arm injury.
Sister Sought Help
The boy’s sister witnessed the fall and went to a nearby home where she sought help from a resident who called 9-1-1. Thankfully she knows how to be safe and seek help. Deputy Greg Myers responded quickly. He contacted the girl who led him to the cliff edge where the boy had fallen. The Deputy observed that the boy was about 20 feet down, near the water’s edge and was getting hit by incoming waves.
Luckily Deputy Myers is a resident deputy assigned to patrol in this area.
Our Hero, Deputy Myers
Deputy Myers climbed down a group of rocks where he was able to get on his stomach and pull the completely soaked boy up by his arm. Myers then carried the boy up to a safe bluff, There, the child was treated by medical crews from Cal Fire and Coastal Life Support. The ambulance took the boy to the Gualala clinic.
We are happy to learn he is expected to be just fine after suffering a possible broken arm.
It was later determined the boy and his sister were visiting the area with their parents from Belmont, CA. They were staying in a home about a mile from where this accident happened. Their parents were notified and didn’t realize their kids had gone so far away from the home.
In Summary- Be Responsible Adults and Teach Your Children Well
Here’s to the wonderfully responsible sister! Luckily she had the where-with-all to contact a resident to call The Sea Ranch emergency number to save her brother!
Here’s to the resident who memorized the emergency number 707-565-2121 that brought Deputy Myers to the cliff with such speed.
In fact, here’s to all our safety and emergency first responders! We are especially thankful for The Sea Ranch’s North Sonoma Coast Fire Protection District. This company of dedicated volunteer and career firefighters provide fire protection, emergency medical response, rescue, and public assistance services to the communities of northwestern Sonoma County.
And here’s to our Redwood Medical Center who was able to mend the child’s broken arm.
While we’re proud and thankful for having all these wonderful people in our neighborhood, I hope you never have to meet them outside of a social occasion.
