Injured hiker rescued by helicopter
The patient, Julie Packard age 48, was reported to have fallen and broke her leg. She had been hiking with relatives and was approximately 4.5 miles from the trail head when she fell. Due to the remoteness of the area, Life Flight was activated and responded. Deputies, fire personnel and SAR members were able to hike in and make contact with Packard at 1:41 p.m. Packard was then extracted out to the trail head and Life Flight transported her to Pioneer Memorial Hospital.
