Hiker Rescued by Helicopter
A 25-year-old Minnesota woman had to be rescued while hiking in Cane Beds. When the woman didn’t return from the hike, the Mohave County Sheriff’s office got a call and sent search and rescue teams out. The woman had allegedly fallen 100 feet from a cliff and spent the night on a narrow ledge with serious injuries. Amber Kohnhorst said she tried crawling about 50 feet, but the terrain got too difficult. When she heard the rescue helicopter overhead, she got their attention and was airlifted out of the canyon and onto the top of the cliff. The rescue team then rappelled down and hoisted her into the helicopter, since it had no place to land. Kohnhorst sustained a severe head injury as well as injuries to her back.

Look Before You Lock Your Vehicle
Temperatures are going up around the Tri-State and fire officials remind you that it’s even hotter inside your vehicle. You’re reminded to double-check that you haven’t left children or pets inside your vehicle when exiting. Temperatures can rise 20 degrees in only 10 minutes and children’s temperatures can rise 3 to 5 times faster than an adult. Even a short stay in a hot car can be fatal. As a reminder, officials ask you to place a stuffed animal in the front seat as a reminder that there’s a child or pet inside and to remember to “look before you lock.” You should also keep your vehicle’s doors locked at home so children don’t wander in and get locked inside.
