We received a call from the Riverside Country Sheriff’s Department that a man was reported to have had a heart attack somewhere up the Pacific Crest Trail in Whitewater. We just got home from training and quickly reloaded the gear and drove to Whitewater. Upon arrival, we learned that the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Helicopter had been called and already had picked up the patient and was enroute to the desert hospital.
