Helmet-cam captures Monday rescue of injured hiker in Snohomish County

Check out this helmet-cam footage of the rescue of an injured hiker Monday near Oso.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Helicopter and Search and Rescue (SCSAR) Teams rescued the female backcountry hiker from the Boulder River trail, near Oso.

The hiker, whose age and hometown are unknown, was injured Sunday and stayed overnight with companions about three miles up the trail in heavy timber and steep terrain.  SCSAR and crews from the Oso and Darrington fire departments hiked to the site and waited with the injured woman.

On Sunday morning, the sheriff’s office’s helicopter airlifted the victim and an attendant, using a “short-haul” system, from the trail to a field near Highway 530.  The victim was then flown to Providence Hospital in Everett.
