Heat injuries at Camp Geronimo (AZ)

Recommended Posts

Rescuers airlifted one Boy Scout, hand-carried out another and provided water to a handful of others after a group doing trail maintenance ran into heat and medical issues outside Camp Geronimo recently.

One of the boys was having trouble breathing and appeared to have heat stroke so “out of an abundance of caution” was airlifted from the trail for medical treatment, Pitterle said.

Another boy was also having heat issues and TRSAR volunteers carried him out on a wheeled litter.

TRSAR hauled water up for the rest of the group and they were able to walk out safely, he said.
