Snohomish County has busy search-and-rescue night

Snohomish County Search and Rescue had a busy night on Sunday, helping a total of three hikers in two separate operations.

At 3:15 p.m. Sunday, 911 got a call that two male hikers appeared to be stuck by a waterfall on Mount Dickerman along the Mountain Loop Highway.

Less than an hour later, a second call came in. This time it was for an injured female hiker on a trail at Perry Creek, which is less than a mile away from Mount Dickerman.

Everett Mountain Rescue used safety ropes to lower the two men past the waterfall. The pair then hiked out on foot alongside volunteer rescuers. They reached the trailhead at about 3 a.m. Monday, according to a press release from the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office.

At the same time, other rescuers reached the injured hiker, who had broken her ankle in a fall, according to the release.

She was loaded into a litter and carried out by the volunteers. They also reached the trailhead at about 3 a.m.

A search-and-rescue team member had a medical emergency unrelated to the rescues, said Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office.

He was taken by helicopter to Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, where he is in critical condition, she said.

Rescuers from teams in Skagit, Pierce and King counties helped with the operations.
