Hikers rescued by Police Helicopter in DB
- Written by arounddb, 3 January 2016
Around 7pm yesterday, DB residents could hear a Police helicopter circling Discovery Bay and in particular the golf course area. They were searching for hikers, lost on one of the DB trails.
Talking to DB City Management, two hikers got lost on one of the DB trails just below the bridge that leads to the Golf Course. Apparently, as it started to get dark, the hikers lost their way, started to panic and called the Police. A search operation was quickly launched. When the Police helicopter arrrived in Discovery Bay, it took them almost 2 hours to locate and rescue the lost hikers. No one was injured!
