Freezing dog walker rescued

Search and rescue crews had their first assignment of 2018 after a dog walker got stuck in a ravine Tuesday night.

Central Okanagan Search and Rescue managed to rescue a 50-year-old dog walker who got stuck in a ravine while walking her three dogs. She was in the forested area north of Begbie and Union roads in North Glenmore.

Despite a dying cell phone she managed to take a picture and send out her GPS coordinates as the sun was going down.

More than a dozen search and rescue volunteers responded and the hiker was located quickly and brought to safety, cold but unharmed.  

The three dogs were also unharmed.
