Firefighters from the district of North Vancouver were in action this afternoon rescuing an injured hiker on Mount Seymour.
Acting Assistant Duty Chief David Franco says crews got the call around three this afternoon.
“It’s an elderly female who took a bit of a spill, and she has a significant shoulder injury. Two crews are just going to package her up and carry her out, it’s a pretty simple extraction.”
Franco says the woman was hiking with her husband when she fell backwards off the trail.
