Hiker, dog rescued in Angeles National Forest after ending up 800 feet down cliff

Quote:
While crews were hiking to rescue the dog, a civilian volunteer was hit by a large rock that had fallen about 40 feet. The rock hit the person on the head, right shoulder, arm and hand. The rock also knocked off his headlamp and caused his right hand to go numb.

The volunteer hiked out of the area on his own and then went to a hospital. X-rays showed he had fractured his right index finger and he received treatment.

LA County mountain rescue teams share perilous experiences

Quote:
However, while the chopper crews may be all full-time sheriff's employees, the search and rescue teams are not.

"We're volunteers. All of us have other jobs," said Cynthia Moyneur England, with Montrose Search and Rescue.

How do you "end up" 800 feet below the Lowe Road south of Mueller tunnel with a dog? That's gotta be a first, right?

Maybe mud...that can be treacherous (to me, anyway)...there are several "viewpoints" along that road with great views into the canyon...would be easy to slip off one if muddy...also, Christopher Brennen's Hike D7: Upper Eaton Canyon (http://www.dankat.com/advents/upreat.htm) begins along there...maybe she was trying that, and lost control in the mud on the descent from Markham Saddle...maybe one of them slipped and the other tried to rescue...

Just wild guesses...haven't been up there since the rains (I don't hike in mud or snow because if I did, that would be me down there...but my favorite birding area is still a mess from the storms)...

I admire you folks who have the knowledge and skills to deal with such conditions...I just crash & burn, so avoid 'em...
