Tahquitz Helicopter rescue 9/13?

Postby Aaron Dyer » Mon Sep 14, 2009 4:59 pm

Blair and I were on the Larks yesterday and saw a helicopter fly right over the top of us and thought we had heard an accident around the corner to the south. Does anyone have any information on this?

Maybe. It might have been a tour.

It could have been unrelated, but other reasons we thought that it might be accident related were the (3) fire trucks and (1) ambulance we saw on our drive out all racing towards Humber Park.

Don't know if this is related to the heli but I saw a SAR Team command post with dogs at the Fuller Ridge TH on Saturday afternoon.
I didn't bother them with questions, but my impression was that they were either doing a training exercise or searching for a missing hiker.
