Rope Rescue in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada


Vancouver Fire crews rescued a 19-year-old UBC student in distress from a forested area near Wreck Beach, early Saturday morning.

Vancouver Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff Coroliuc said initially a Canadian Coast Guard hovercraft, an RCMP helicopter, and a high-angle rescue team were all called to the rescue.

“The trails out here are dark, we got reports of someone falling off a cliff,” Coroliuc said.

But the hovercraft and helicopter were not required, after emergency crews found the young woman capable of getting herself out of the woods
