Rescue at Barclay Lake

August 5, 2021

Around 1 p.m. yesterday, Search and Rescue (SAR) responded to Barclay Lake for a 40-year-old hiker who suffered a serious ankle injury.

SAR coordinated a 20 person pack out team to carry her back down to the trailhead. Once she arrived safely down the trail, she was transported by aid to Providence Regional Medical Center for treatment of her injury.

These types of rescue missions occur regularly in the summer moths and they would not be possible without our on-call volunteers with Snohomish County Volunteer Search & Rescue.

A HUGE thank you to every volunteer who responded to this mission and thank you to Sky Valley Fire Department for their assistance.
