A 53-year-old man who went into cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon while attending a timber industry event in the foothills outside Molalla, was brought back to life through the efforts of attendees using CPR and an off-duty Molalla Fire District EMT.

The man, whose name has not been released, was attending the Pacific Logging Congress “In the Woods” national convention, a three-day industry event being held this year at Port Blakely Tree Farms on Trout Creek Road, six miles from Molalla.

  1. I just wanted to give a huge “shout out” for a job well done. It was the first time my husband and I attended and we were very impressed by the entire event. Being in the logging industry in Southern Oregon for the last 30+ years and running mostly conventional equipment it was fun to watch a fully mechanized system. Actually it was awesome and the setting could not have been better. Only wish our trees grew like that down here.

    I was also impressed by the number of students that were able to attend. It is so important that they get exposed to how our resources really come to us. Plus it may just expose some young person to a future career opportunity.

    Anyway, well done! We are glad we made the effort to come. I know my husband enjoyed the classes as well.

    I hope you continue to promote this kind of exposure to logging.
