Santa Cruzans Save Hiker and Paramedic 06/10/12 AF

Two Santa Cruz natives came to the rescue of an injured hiker, and then the arriving paramedic last Thursday.      Air Force pulmonologist Jeremy Kilburn was hiking with a friend in the Shasta Trinity forest when he fell off a rock, breaking his leg and injuring his ankle.   Santa Cruz residents and summer camp counselors, Elizabeth Fitch and Bryce Harbert, came across Kilburn on the trail and radioed for help.   When a paramedic helicopter arrived, a flight officer exited and was struck in the head by the slowing but still spinning blades.    The group descended a hill and began to help the paramedic with lifesaving measures.    Their quick thinking saved the man’s life.
