Mission SAR Called to Assist BCAS

Mission, B.C. – August 31, 2016

Mission Search and Rescue was called out by BC Ambulance yesterday to assist in the rescue of a woman who was found approximately 150 feet down an embankment off Butler Place.

BCAS was initially informed that she had fallen about 45 feet but when they attended realized this wasn’t the case. The MSAR Rope Rescue team was put into action, lowering a stretcher down the ravine. The woman was packaged and transported to an awaiting ambulance. The extent of her injuries is unknown at this time.
