Saturday morning we were paged out for a 14 year old male who had a fractured ankle near Granite Falls up Indian Arm.

The HFRS team was scrambled and NSR was on scene quickly via Talon Helicopters. BC Parks was also on scene as they were already in the area.


The subject received first aid from BC Parks, and was then extricated via HFRS and flown back to our Bone Creek SAR Station where he was handed over to BCAS.

Shortly after we were notified of an another rescue on Cypress. NSR flew to Cypress and quickly picked up the injured hiker/snowboarder and handed him over the BCAS at the Cypress Parking lot. The photos are from the first rescue up Indian Arm (Photo Credit Rob Wilson).
