15-013; Aug 10 - Fish Creek Falls Mission. A 69 yr old male from Arkansas was coming back from Long Lake along the Fish Creek Trail when he slipped and fell crossing a small creek.  He had some back discomfort but continued down the trail to above a quarter mile from the upper falls until he could no longer continue.  His brother continued down the trail and found some other hikers at the 2nd bridge who had a cell phone and called 911 around 8:00pm.  The brother continued down with the other hikers to the Fish Creek parking lot and gave some additional information to the Sheriff’s Deputy and SAR members who would be going up the trail from the parking lot.  An additional team on ATVs went to Dry Lake and rode in on ATVs to Long Lake and took one ATV down the trail to meet up with the other team and the subject.  He was transported out via riding on the ATV to the Sheriff Deputy’s vehicle that had come up to Long Lake to transport the subject and team members who had hiked up from the bottom.  The subject was in good condition and spirits and did not need medical attention.  All units were back at the rescue barn at 2:00am.
