At approximately 4:30 in the afternoon we received a call from the Hemet Station of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department that our technical rock assistance was needed to assist the Pine Cove Fire Department in the rescue of a man who was injured by a 30 foot fall above Azalea Trails. As members started to arrive at the roadhead above the Dark Canyon Campground the fire department along with volunteer help had been able to complete the mission. Members were turned around, and the injured man was taken by ambulance to Camp Maranatha where the Life Flight helicopter was waiting.
