Search and rescue volunteers are currently working to get an injured Pine-Strawberry middle school student off a trail.
The child was reportedly hiking the Donahue Trail, just south of Pine near Milk Ranch Point, when he twisted his ankle, said Lt. Tim Scott with the Gila County Sheriff’s Office.
The P-S Fire Department notified the sheriff’s office that a member of Tonto Rim Search and Rescue is currently with the student and needs assistance to get the child out, Scott said.
“P-S fire is currently responding to the Pine Trailhead along with Gila County Mounted Posse and Search and Rescue Coordinator Deputy Rod Cronk who will supervise the rescue,” he said.
The age of the child is currently unknown. More information will follow.
