Labor Day Weekend Hiker Rescues | Pacific Palisades
Los Angeles Fire Department responded to two hiker rescue incidents in Pacific Palisades over Labor Day weekend.
Air Ops responded to a call for rescue on Saturday, September 4, that was reported at 12:24 p.m. where they found one dog deceased and a second in medical distress with a hiker near 1000 N Will Rogers State Park Road, according to LAFD Spokesperson Margaret Stewart.
“The helicopter will be conducting multiple hoist operations to retrieve all three and rendezvous with ground resources at a safe landing location,” Stewart wrote.
No further details were available, including the condition of the hiker.
Later that day, Air Ops located two uninjured hikers who were unable to further negotiate the terrain around 8:13 p.m. near 1500 Umeo Road in the Riviera neighborhood.
“Due to the location and lack of visibility, they are preparing for a hoist operation,” Stewart reported at the time. “They will then land and transfer the hikers to ground personnel to assist in their return to their vehicle.”
The original 911 call was received by the department at 7:32 p.m. No further details were available.
