Two calls on BC Day

Monday, August 3 2015. Lions Bay Search and Rescue volunteers were activated around 9pm on August 3rd for two separate incidents. The first incident involved a group of 4 hikers who were on the ridge between the Lions and Mount Unnecessary. Two members of the hiking party suffered from a lower leg injury. Two teams were sent to aid the group. The first traveled light and fast, the second carried medical equipment. The hikers and the rescuers were evacuated by helicopter early on Tuesday morning.

A second call was received within minutes of the first call for a hiker who had become separated from their hiking party in the Mount Brunswick area. The lost hiker was located without much difficulty and uninjured.
