CORBETT, Ore. (AP) — Fire officials say a woman who slipped from the Multnomah Falls trail in snowy conditions and wound up clinging to a tree root above a cliff has been rescued. KATU reports the fall was reported at about 3 p.m. Monday east of Portland at Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge.
