Rescued after hornet stings

Search and rescue crews had to be called in to the Buntzen Lake area after two hikers were badly stung by hornets. 

The rescue operation, first dispatched at about 1:45 p.m., found one injured party on the Diez Vistas trail, and airlifted a second person out of the area later in the afternoon.

"We're going to long line that person out," Coquitlam SAR tweeted shortly after 3 p.m.

The rescue crews are taking this opportunity to urge the public to be safe around wasp and hornet nests in the back country. BC Parks has been contacted in relation to the Diez Vistas nest.
