Search and Rescue operations for two males stranded on Mt. Dickerman and for a woman with an injured ankle on the Perry Creek trail were completed early this morning.
Everett Mountain Rescue was able to climb up to the two men and rappel them down. The two victims were then walked out of the area on foot by volunteer rescuers, and they reached the trailhead around 3 a.m.
The female with the injured ankle was packed into a litter and carried out by volunteer rescuers to the trailhead, also around 3 a.m.
No other information about any of the victims is available.
The male search and rescue volunteer who had a medical event during the mission was transported to Providence Regional Medical Center by SnoHAWK10 and remains in critical condition.
