At around 4 p.m. on Oct. 4, Central Okanagan Search and Rescue (COSAR) was called out to rescue a woman in her 60’s who injured her ankle while mountain biking at trestle number four and required assistance getting to the waiting ambulance.

COSAR dispatched nine members, who administered first aid and used the UTV to bring the woman to the BCEHS ambulance at the Ruth Station parking lot.
