Fernie SAR was called out this afternoon to assist a group of snowmobilers near the Notch. One of the group sustained a serious lower leg injury while sledding and was unable to self-rescue. A team of 3 CDFL technicians responded by helicopter and quickly located the subject thanks to excellent GPS information from the group. In the event it was possible to land near the subject, in an LZ prepared by the group. The subject was rapidly assessed and flown back to Fernie and handed over to BCAS.
