Ingonish Beach RCMP assisted Parks Canada and EHS in rescuing a hiker from the Franey Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
On November 14, at approximately 2 p.m., police received a request for assistance from Parks Canada and EHS in relation to an injured hiker on the Franey Trail in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Police learned that a 57-year-old woman became injured while hiking the trail and needed to be rescued.
A member of the Ingonish Beach RCMP used an RCMP ATV and entered the trail along with Parks Canada employees on Parks Canada ATVs.
