Mission Search and Rescue (MSAR) was called out Sunday afternoon after an ATV accident.

MSAR was needed to help BC Ambulance Service with the transport of the injured rider, who was hurt just off of Norrish Creek Forest Service Road.

The rider suffered injuries after rolling his ATV on a washed out deactivated side road.

The MSAR team had to carry the stretcher from the accident scene, over some difficult terrain in order to get the injured rider to the Gator, MSAR’s off-road rescue vehicle.

From there, the Gator was used to move the subject to an awaiting helicopter, which took the injured rider to a nearby hospital for treatment of various injuries, including possible broken bones.

MSAR would like to thank Chilliwack Search and Rescue for having its team on standby.
