Palm Springs Mounted Police Search & Rescue
12 hrs ยท
On September 30th, 2018 at approximately 0846 hours, the Palm Springs Mounted Police Search and Rescue Unit and The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians Tribal Rangers responded to a injured hiker off trail in Tahquitz Canyon. PSMP-SAR located the injured hiker in an area off limits to the public, who had suffered minor injuries from a fall, but were unable to escort him down the trail due to his injuries and location. PSMP-SAR coordinated with the California Highway Patrol (H-60) and provided the location. CHP responded and hoisted the injured hiker off the mountain and airlifted the hiker to PSMP-SAR's Landing Zone where AMR and PS Fire Paramedics treated the hiker and transported him to a local hospital where he will be treated for his injuries. Thank you to all the agencies involved.
