Mission, B.C. – May 31, 2015
Mission Search and Rescue assisted BC Ambulance Service with the transport of an injured ATV rider Sunday afternoon off of Norrish Creek Forest Service Road. The rider suffered injuries after rolling his ATV on a washed out deactivated side road. The MSAR team had to carry the stretcher from the accident scene, over some difficult terrain in order to get to its off-road ‘Gator’.
From there, the ‘Gator’ was used to move the subject to an awaiting helicopter, which took the injured rider to a nearby hospital for treatment of various injuries, including possible broken bones.
Special thanks to Chillwack SAR for having their HETS team on standby. We were fortunate the helicopter was able to land on the road.
