“Effective coordination with our partner agencies ensured a safe and efficient transfer of the survivor,” said Lt. Derrick Rockey, MH-60 pilot. “Working together to get the hiker to higher medical care was the goal, and we got it done.”

The Coast Guard encourages those venturing outdoors to always be aware of surroundings and be mindful of dangerous terrain. Hikers should have the proper equipment and a reliable means of communication in case of an emergency.
