On Wednesday, July 27, 2022 at 11:13 AM, Bella Coola RCMP were alerted to a hiker in medical distress as Bella Coola Valley Search and Rescue received an INREACH notification.

SAR arranged for a private helicopter to attend to aid in the rescue and it was enroute from Campbell River.

As luck would have it, the RCMP Air 3 was in Bella Coola for an unrelated matter and immediately transported two SAR personnel to the location of the hiker.

The RCMP helicopter loaded the hiker and safely took him to the airport where Bella Coola RCMP were waiting with BC Ambulance Service, who transported the man to hospital.

We were very fortunate that the right people were in the right place at the right time when the call for help came in, said Sgt. Trevor Romanchych, NCO i/c Bella Coola RCMP.
