Search and rescue helps 2 injured hikers

GOLD BAR — Teams from Snohomish County Search and Rescue aided injured hikers in separate incidents over the past two days.

The first rescue involved a woman in her 20s with an injured foot near Lake 22 east of Granite Falls.

A call came in around 7 p.m. Tuesday that the woman was unable to hike out on her own due the nature of her injuries, sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

A team of 30 search and rescue volunteers located the woman, placed her in a litter and carried her out around 11 p.m. Her injuries were not believed to be serious.

The second incident occurred near Lake Janus along the Pacific Crest Trail when a man reported that he had broken his ankle while hiking.

The Helicopter Rescue Team was notified and SnoHAWK10, the sheriff’s office helicopter, was launched around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim was hoisted from the area around noon and flown to Gold Bar where he was met by medics from Snohomish County Fire District 26.
