Enderby Cliffs Rescue - Hiker and Dog

Jul 06, 2015

In July of 2015, Vernon SAR responded to a request by the RCMP to locate and rescue a lost hiker in the area of the Enderby Cliffs, north of Vernon.

The subject's position was located from the air, and Vernon SAR team members were able to assess the situation from a bird's-eye-view. Difficult terrain did not allow for the helicopter to land, so a three-man team was inserted as close to the subject as possible, approximately 1.5 km away.
