Snowmobiler Rescued Off Kitimat's Clague Mountain

A snowmobiler was rescued off Clague Mountain near Kitimat, after becoming injured Sunday.

Kitimat Fire and Rescue Captain Glen Robinson credited a solid team effort in helping get the man to hospital.

"Kitimat Search and Rescue coordinated a helicopter from White River Helicopters and the pilot of the helicopter was very knowledgeable and experienced in the area and he was able to get our guys up there to assist the injured snowmobiler to a helicopter which was flown down to Kitimat and BC Ambulance took the patient to Kitimat General where he was looked after for his injuries."

Robinson says other snowmobilers in the area also helped to look after the injured man until the helicopter arrived.

There's no word on the man's condition.
