Inyo County Sheriff's Office -- Rescue near mountaineers route of Mt Whitney
13 hrs · 
Around 8:00pm on August 1, Sheriff’s Dispatch received a call for a subject who had taken a tumbling fall down the Eberbacher Ledges on the North Fork of Lone Pine Creek, the trail that accesses the Mountaineer's Route on Mt. Whitney. 
The subject, an experienced hiker who had summited Whitney multiple times, took a small misstep on the sloping ledges while descending and fell approximately 40 feet before coming to rest on a lower ledge. The hiker's two companions descended to his location where they found him unconscious and with numerous lacerations. After several minutes the subject regained consciousness and became more oriented.
Inyo County Search & Rescue arrived on scene just before midnight. They found the subject in good spirits despite significant pain. After an initial assessment, the patient attempted to hike out with assistance but it became evident that trauma to his ankles left him unable to bear weight. Inyo SAR monitored his condition throughout the night. At 6:25am CHP - Inland Division Air Operations H-80 arrived and hoisted the patient to safety where he was transferred to medical care.
We extend our sincere gratitude to H-80, and wish the patient a swift recovery.

The ambient air temperature on the mountain was 126.4°F
At approximately 2:00 PM the Palm Springs Mounted Police Search and Rescue were activated for a family of three hikers that were lost on the skyline trail. Once PSMP-SAR members made contact with the hikers via cell phone the call was upgraded to a dehydrated hiker call. Palm Springs Fire responded two engine crews to the skyline trail. When the RSO Star 9 helicopter came they were able to off load a deputy and they confirmed the dehydrated nature of the call and a PSMP-SAR member and fire paramedic were immediately airlifted to the patients on the mountain for patient care, as another PSMP-SAR member and two fire paramedics hiked up to meet the other hiker. RSO Star 9 helicopter transported two patients to DRMC and the other patient was transported via AMR. At this time there is no updated information on the patients.
