Injured Hiker Air Rescued In Huachuca Mountains

2 min read

March 22, 2021 – The U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Air and Marine Operations (AMO) Tucson Air Branch responded to a call from Cochise County Search and Rescue (CCSO) requesting air support for a U.S. citizen female hiker stranded in the Huachuca Mountains with a broken leg.

Since no landing zone was accessible and winds were gusting over 40 mph, a hoist capable UH-60 Black Hawk is used with the aircrew successfully locating and hoisting the female into the aircraft. She is then immediately transported to Canyon Vista Hospital for further treatment.

Note: An Arizona DPS helicopter made several attempts to assist the injured hike, but it was unable to land due to the conditions, which resulted in the call to the AMO Tucson Air Branch.
