Campers Cove Medevac

CCFR attempted to launched a rescue in conjunction with the USCG to Campers Cove for a non life threatening injury. Due to high winds & freezing spray a rescue from sea was scrubbed. CCFR has spoken to the injured person by cell phone. They are warm and safe in a cabin with a friend. AST is attempting to launch a Temsco helicopter tonight before dark. Due to very high tides and winds there were no safe landing areas earlier in the day. Temsco was able to land this afternoon and get the person to the airport where they were transported by personal vehicle to BRH for treatment. CCFR had no further involvement in this incident.
