On Monday, July 12, at approximately 1:30 pm, the Alaska State Troopers (AST) received a 9-1-1 call reporting that an individual had suffered a lower leg injury. The hikers were located at approximately mile 2.5 of Kenai Fjords National Park’s Harding Icefield Trail. The Alaska State Troopers requested LifeMed Alaska to respond with a helicopter to assist with extracting the injured hiker off the mountain.
Park Rangers with medical training and equipment responded to the incident location. LifeMed Alaska arrived on location and successfully evacuated the injured hiker to Providence Seward Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries at 2:44 pm.
The National Park Service sincerely appreciates the ongoing partnership with the Alaska State Troopers and their support for critical missions.
