UPDATE: October 5th, 2015, 8:25 AM –
The hiker stranded on a cliff overnight near the Lynn Headwaters who had to wait for first light to be rescued is okay.
She was rescued by helicopter earlier Monday morning.
North Shore Rescue teams made voice contact with her last night, but crews had to remove her from the cliff by helicopter.
The woman was not injured and is fine.
She was experienced, but was unfamiliar with the area she was stuck in.
North Shore Rescue responded to five calls in the last two days.
North Shore Rescue haven’t had much time to rest.
Volunteer crews responded to two calls on Saturday, and three more calls came in Sunday night.
One for five hikers lost near Cypress Mountain Resort, another for a lost man without a light on Mt. Seymour, and a third for a missing woman in the Lynn Headwaters park.
The hikers near Cypress and the man on Mt. Seymour were both rescued, and the missing woman in the Lynn Headwaters has been found.
North Shore Rescue’s Mike Danks says the three rescue teams have made voice contact with her, but it’s difficult to get to her because she’s on a cliff.
Danks says they’ll be starting their rescue at first light, most likely via helicopter.
“We’re gonna be using an aircraft with most likely a 150-250 foot line underneath the aircraft.”
He says the woman is uninjured — just cold.
Danks adds the woman was relatively experienced, but unfamiliar with that particular trail.
North Shore Rescue has responded to five calls in just two days.
