Busy Long Weekend for COSAR

Saturday COSAR was called out twice.

  1. The first call from the Kelowna RCMP was for a disoriented mountain biker on the kettle valley railway. The rider had been dropped off at the bottom of June Springs Rd with the intention of mountain biking to the KVR and then home to Penticton. However the rider was ill prepared as he did not take any water with him and became dehydrated and disoriented. COSAR responded with 9 members and brought him out to a waiting ambulance. The male was checked and released by BCEHS.
    • Search Manager Duane Tresnich would like to remind riders to ensure they are properly prepared for the heat. Go to AdventureSmart.ca for more information.
  2. Later Saturday night COSAR was called to assist BCEHS at Oyama Lake Lodge. A male had fallen from a deck at one of the cabins on the far side of the lake and needed to be transported to a waiting ambulance.

Sunday, COSAR’s dog team was called out for a mutual aid call assisting Penticton Search and Rescue in looking for a missing man in the Cawston area.
