An Old Rag Injury Extracted

 
 
On Saturday October 20, 2012 ORMS participated in a response to a hiker who had fallen and injured their back in the lower part of the Old Rag rock scramble.   Below is a short video of Eagle One extracting the patient off of Old Rag near the injury site.   Next week I will be able to post more about my Old Rag activities for that day and weekend.    I will not be on Old Rag again until the first weekend in November.
