A Bend man was found face down and still in his wheelchair Saturday afternoon in the irrigation canal along the Larkspur Trail in southeast Bend.
A Bend couple walking the trail spotted Randall Bush, 56, in the canal around 3 p.m., according to Bend Police. Bush had accidentally tumbled into the canal.
Jesse Thomas, 33, jumped into the canal and moved Bush so that he was partially out of the water while Thomas’ wife called 911 for help.
Thomas, police and paramedics teamed up to remove Bush and his wheelchair from the canal.
He was taken by ambulance to St. Charles Bend, according to police, and was treated there for non-life threatening injuries.
