Authorities involved in multiple mountain rescues over the weekend

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Authorities were associated in multiple mountain rescues around the weekend.

Division of Public Security (DPS) officials mentioned they worked with Cochise County Sheriff’s Business office (CCSO) in two different circumstances.

The 1st incident commenced at about 3 a.m. on Saturday when deputies read about an undocumented immigrant missing in the Huachuca Mountains.

Sheriff Mark J. Dannels shared around social media that Border Patrol informed the sheriff’s section about it, declaring there weren’t enough brokers to answer.

He claims responding authorities had originally planned on sending a ground crew, but couldn’t mainly because of the shed person’s situation. That is when the DPS and CCSO Lookup and Rescue Device sent in a helicopter to rescue the specific.

Later Saturday early morning at about 10, the CCSO read about a rattlesnake biting a 64-year-old girl near the conclude of Carr Canyon Highway and about a mile previous the trailhead.

A DPS Air Rescue Unit then teamed up yet again with CCSO deputies to rescue her.

Rural Metro firefighters and the Pima County Sheriff’s Section Search and Rescue Device also labored together whilst rescuing a hiker.

Rangers involved say it happened Sunday afternoon on Finger Rock Trail.
