Happy Ending to Search and Rescue Mission
On Feb 28, 2008 the Baja Protection Agency called Mandy Patterson at Corporate Helicopters to launch a Search and Rescue Mission in Baja California. Two high profile lawyers from Tijuana had gone hiking and were missing for several days in the rugged mountains of the Sierra Madres.
Pilot, Joe Koller landed at Ensenada Airport and met with Mario Rodriquez the head of the search and rescue team for Baja California along with one of his teammates. They headed for El Diablo, a 38-minute flight and a climb to 8000 feet. As they climbed to altitude they discussed their search patterns and grids. The LongRanger was flying over some very rugged terrain when out of the corner of his eye, Joe saw movement and banked to the right. Below him there were two figures jumping up and down and waving. The helicopter circled over them and then headed for a clearing a 1/2 mile away. The hikers had been without food and water for the past three days and were running out of hope to be found.
Joe and Mario rescued the two Attorneys and their Saint Bernard puppy and were greeted back at Tijuana Airport by the Televisa Evening News Crew.
