Injured person near Campers Cove removed by helicopter

Capital City Fire and Rescue worked with Temsco Helicopters, Inc. to pick up a person with non-life threatening injuries near Campers Cove on Sunday, according to CCFR Chief Rich Etheridge’s Twitter account.

The injured person was safe and in a cabin with friends, but needed to be treated at Bartlett Regional Hospital, tweets from Etheridge said. The U.S. Coast Guard planned to transport medics to the site in a rescue boat, but the transport was canceled “due to high winds and freezing spray,” Etheridge tweeted. “CCFR is working with other transportation options.”

Temsco was able to reach the cabin before dark and extracted the injured person. “They went to BRH in a personal vehicle for treatment of minor injuries,” Etheridge tweeted.
