Kent-Harrison Search and Rescue assisted in life-saving Bridal Falls rescue

KHSAR reminds the public that their services come at no charge

Kent-Harrison Search and Rescue volunteers were involved in a life-saving rescue on the Bridal Falls trail in Chilliwack on Wednesday morning.

According to scanner traffic, a female went into cardiac arrest at the summit of Bridal Falls; the patient reportedly had a head injury and was not breathing.

Popkum Fire department was called in to assist setting up a landing zone for an air ambulance, and an off-duty nurse on the scene assisted. Scanner traffic indicates the patient’s vital signs were stabilized before she was flown to hospital.
