Two local search and rescue operations took place in Chelan County last weekend.

A caller reported around 2:15 p.m. on Saturday that they were with a group at Cantaloupe Island Crag in the Icicle Drainage and had an injured member in their party.

22-year-old Lauren Adkins of Redmond had twisted her ankle approximately 1,800 feet above the roadway on an extremely steep trail.

A ground team of Search and Rescue members and medics were deployed.

Medics were able to splint Adkins’ ankle, and she walked out with assistance at around 8:15 p.m.

Adkins refused transport to the hospital.

The second caller reported a mountain bike accident around 11:00 a.m. Sunday on the Xanadu Trail in the Derby Canyon area of Peshastin.

42-year-old Jennifer Eichorn sustained a broken leg in the mountain bike accident.

Eichorn was transported by wheeled litter to a Sheriff’s Office UTV outfitted with a carrier, which then took her to a waiting ambulance on the roadway.

Eichorn was transported to Central Washington Hospital around 4:30 p.m.
