INJURED MOUNTAIN BIKER ON KETTLE VALLEY RAILWAY
Sunday afternoon COSAR was called out by BC Ambulance Service to assist an injured mountain biker on the Kettle Valley Railway. The woman was riding along trestle number 6 when she fell causing an upper body injury. COSAR attended with 9 members and rode down the railway until connecting with injured woman. Once she was stabilized, COSAR removed her with the use of our UTV and brought her out to a waiting ambulance. She was then transported to KGH for further treatment.
“This has been an exceptionally busy year on the KVR. I think we’re getting called out every 10 days or so,” said Search Manager Duane Tresnich.
This was COSARs 65th call of 2022.
