A lady senior (78) with cognitive disabilities wandered from her campsite with minimal equipment.

Volunteer SAR ground pounders searched for four days. It was pretty closed-in terrain and vegetation from the reports I've seen.

She was spotted by an RCMP chopper, clinging to a branch on a steep embankment. They performed a toe-in procedure to pluck her off the slope.

Hats off to the SAR ground pounders and helo crew who brought this lady safely home.
