Callout – Slocan Chief Cabin

Feb 11th NSAR was again activated to evacuate a subject from the Slocan Chief Cabin in Kokanee Glacier Park. The subject was suffering from heart issues and was in need of medical aid. NSAR was again able to access the area through dense valley cloud by helicopter but was unable to get back through the valley cloud on return flight. The subject was flown to the Busk ski area parking lot above the cloud cover to be safely transferred to BCEHS.
