According to officials, the woman was able to call 911 to report that she was trapped inside the UTV and that the other passenger had been ejected from the vehicle. Crews from multiple rescue agencies then partnered with bystanders to search the different trails for both victims.

"One team was able to locate the female patient and dispatched the remaining personnel to that location," authorities said, per the release. "A paramedic with PCEMS (also a member of PCSAR and RedSTAR) was able to set up an improvised rope system to gain initial patient access."
