Helicopter Rescue Needed For Hiker in Sycamore Canyon

Northern Arizona is the place to go from breathtaking hikes, but sometimes even the most experienced outdoors people get injured and need help.

That was the case on Sunday as deputies from the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office had to rescue a climber in Sycamore Canyon after she severely hurt her leg.

A helicopter was used to retrieve the climber, a 22-year-old woman who was visiting from the Apache Junction area and climbing with another individual. CCSO deputies received the call around 11 a.m., and they found the hiker about 80 feet below the canyon’s rim. Search and rescue teams lowered a rescuer by rope over the edge of the canyon to reach the woman. A second first responder rappelled down to the hiker and helped to splinter the injury and prepare the woman for transport to the hospital.

Several hours later, around 4:25 p.m., the hiker and a search and rescue officer were hauled out of the canyon while suspended from a Department of Public Safety Air Rescue helicopter. They landed a short distance away and got into an ambulance that took the patient to the Flagstaff Medical Center.

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office worked together with the Williams Fire Department, Lifeline Ambulance and the US Forest Service to rescue the hiker and keep her safe. Please visit the official website of the Coconino County Sheriff’s Office for more information HERE.
