OSO, Wash. – A volunteer rescue worker has been injured while working in the debris of the Washington state mudslide.

Everett Police spokesman Aaron Snell said a man working in the debris area of the landslide was injured when a small piece of debris thrown up by a helicopter downdraft struck him in the head, rendering him unconscious momentarily.

The man was flown to a landing zone where he was evaluated by a doctor.

Snell says his injuries appeared to be minor and he was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett as a precaution.
