Oregon hike – falling, fracturing pelvis, being taken down the mountain in a wheelbarrow

A mile and a half up the trail, I tripped, fell and broke my pelvis. We had no cell phone connection, so two of my friends ran down the mountain, hopped in their car and saw a wheelbarrow in a yard. They took it, wheeled back up the mountain and lifted me into it. Because of the rocks, at one time I was thrown out of the barrow. Meanwhile, someone that passed us going down called 911. The EMTs arrived just as we got to the bottom of the trail.
