Lower leg injury on the Lions trail

July 25 2015 – Lions Bay SAR was activated by BC Ambulance Service to respond to a call for a hiker who had injured his lower let and was not able to continue hiking. It was quickly decided that a long line rescue would be the best method to remove the subject. One Lions Bay SAR member was able to board the helicopter in North Vancouver with the North Shore Rescue HETS (long line rescue). After a quick assessment the subject was packaged and airlifted out to a waiting ambulance in Lions Bay. A ground team responded to the subject location too. The subject created a video of the event.
