From Feb 8 2009 Rescue. Sorry posting this one a few weeks late.
NSR and Mt Seymour Resorts Ski Patrol responded to an area below the 1st Peak of Mt. Seymour for an injured male snowshoer. The male subject broke his lower leg after falling on the icy trail. NSR members landed close by in a Talon Helicopters A Star.
The subject had a traction splint applied and was given morphine for his pain. The subject was then lowered on a short belay to the staged helicopter. HFRS was not required.
The subject was flown out to the Seymour Resorts Parking Lot and transported to Lion Gate Hospital by BC Ambulance.
NSR woould like to thank all the passing hikers and skiiers who helped on the call.
