  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

The Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue Unit and volunteers from Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue rescued an injured female hiker from Mt. Pilchuck on July 2. The woman reported to 911 around 2:30 p.m. that she had slipped on ice above the snow line and injured her knee.  Due to the weather, the Helicopter Rescue Team deployed rescuers at the lookout on top of the mountain who hiked down to the patient.  She was extracted by SnoHAWK10 and transported to Taylor's Landing  around 6:30 p.m. The   patient  was  not  carrying    the 10 essentials  and wasn’t equipped to traverse snow or stay overnight.  This is the seventh SAR mission to Mt. Pilchuck in less than one month.

More than a dozen volunteers from Snohomish County Volunteer Search and Rescue assisted in the mission.
