KHSAR and Agassiz RCMP responded to a call from a man attempting to walk to Harrison from a logging camp near Bear Creek campground.

Male called 911 during winter walk near Harrison

Emergency respond to call last night

Emergency services responded to a call last night from a male who was attempting to walk from the 23 kilometre marker near Bear Creek campground into Harrison Hot Springs. The man conducted security at a log sort in the area and had hoped to get a ride into town, but poor conditions on Harrison East Forest Service Road kept traffic out of the area. With cold weather and exhaustion setting in, the male called for help about 12 kilometres into the trek.

At about 7 p.m., Agassiz RCMP called for Kent Harrison Search and Rescue (KHSAR) to attend the area and rescue the area. The male was in good health when he was picked up near Rainbow Falls and brought into Harrison. KHSAR manager Neil Brewer says the man was not appropriately dressed for the weather and the outcome of the situation could have been very bad if emergency services had not been dispatched.
