Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue (CVGSAR) members had a busy weekend.

On Saturday night, they were called to the Mount Washington area to help an injured hiker.

“Two members were inserted by (an) RCMP Air 8 (helicopter) just before sunset, where they assessed the subject and remained overnight,” Comox Valley SAR said in a Facebook post.

On Sunday morning, the Air 8 flew in a stretcher team to move the hiker to a suitable landing zone for evacuation.  

“Air 8 made several trips, delivering the hiker to BC Ambulance Service, and the CVGSAR teams back to Incident Command at Raven Lodge,” the Facebook post noted.
