Maryland State Police Conducts Aerial Rescue In Frederick County

Maryland State Police Conducts Aerial Rescue In Frederick County


Maryland State Police, September 18, 2017 - FREDERICK, Md — A Maryland State Police helicopter crew assisted first responders from Frederick County Fire and Rescue with the rescue of an injured hiker in the Catoctin Mountain Park on Sunday.

The hiker, a 48-year-old male, sustained injuries when he fell in a particularly rugged area of the forest landing in a crevice 30 feet below.

Maryland State Police helicopter Trooper 3, based in Frederick, Maryland, responded to Chimney Rock after rescue personnel encountered treacherous conditions while attempting to extract the patient from a crevice.

Pilots maneuvered the AW-139 helicopter into position 100 feet above a rocky embankment and a trooper was lowered to the scene to assist with patient packaging.

A successful extraction using the helicopter hoist was conducted within 12 minutes and the patient was subsequently transported to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center for evaluation. The mission is an excellent example of the constant collaboration between local fire, EMS, law enforcement, technical rescue teams and the MSP Aviation Command.

Troopers of the Aviation Command would like to remind Marylanders to exercise caution while enjoying the last few weeks of summer weather and outdoor activities.

Maryland State Police Aviation provides round-the-clock coverage in Maryland for a variety of airborne public safety missions.

Ten AW-139 helicopters based out of seven sections across the state provide medevac, search and rescue, aerial law enforcement, and homeland security services.
