Rescue operation ends with a bizarre twist - Tuesday October 8, 2013

The call came in just before 4pm on Tuesday October 8th for a hiker stuck between the 1st and 2nd waterfalls in Eaton Canyon. AMRT responded to the canyon and discovered an individual along the west wall, clinging to a ridgeline approximately 150 feet above canyon bottom.

Rescuers climbed above the victim to assess the situation and determine a location to set-up a rescue system. Once in position, it was determined the best plan of action would be to request a helicopter pick-off. A county helicopter was directed to the rescuers location and the victim was successfully rescued.

It was soon discovered there was a second individual who had continued to climb up the canyon. He was found by two members of AMRT along another ridgeline and safely transported to canyon bottom.

After each of the victims was safely at the command post, it was discovered they each had outstanding warrants and were subsequently taken into custody.
