Emergency crews were needed for a West Kelowna woman who fell during a snowy Boxing Day hike in the city’s Glenrosa area.
The woman was rescued, then transported to hospital by ambulance.
“We had a couple of hikers, a husband and a wife, who were down in the canyon,” said Bob Peters of West Kelowna Fire Rescue. “The wife took a bit of a spill and twisted her ankle. They called 911.”
The woman was approximately a kilometre and a half along the trail, and, according to emergency crews, wasn’t able to walk out.
