MT. BALDY – A 29-year-old hiker called 911 when he became lost during a Mount Baldy summit hike on Thursday. The male hiker, identified as Rouslan Sabirzianov an Abu Dhabe, UAE (United Arab Emirates) resident took a wrong trail and ended up on steep terrain near Goode Canyon.
Sabirzianov attempted to hike back down, but he slipped injuring his arm. He called 911 for assistance and the Sheriff’s helicopter (40K6 ) was able to locate the victim, who was at the 7,700-foot level, using the GPS location on his cell phone. The 40K6 crew determined that the victim would require a hoist rescue due to the steep terrain and his inability to safely move from his location.
The Sheriff’s Air Rescue 307 responded to the area to conduct a hoist rescue. The crew’s pilot hovered over the victim, while a firefighter was lowered down to the victim. The victim was placed into a “Hot Seat” rescue harness and was hoisted into the helicopter. The firefighter was also hoisted back into the helicopter following the successful rescue. He was flown to Cow Canyon Saddle and was released to a deputy on scene.
