Saddle Junction, San Jacinto Mtns.
Written by Editor.
The team was called out to at 3pm for an injured hiker just above Saddle Junction on the way to San Jacinto Peak. The hiker had taken a fall and was injured and unable to hike out. As team members were driving to the Command Post at Humber Park, we were informed that Riverside Sheriff’s Aviation were training and had an extra TFO (Technical Flight Officer) on board and could do the hoist without RMRU. Everyone turned around and headed back home at 4pm one hour after the first call.
RMRU Members Involved: Blake Douglas, Eric Holden, Beth Jeffery, and Vinay Rao.
