The Iron County Sheriff’s Office Ropes Rescue and Search and Rescue came to the aid of a hiker stranded on a cliff above Thunderbird Gardens last Thursday.

At approximately 5:20 p.m., deputies were dispatched to an injured hiker on a cliff above the Thunderbird Gardens, according to a press release. Kennedy Hunt, 19, a college student from Nevada, was identified as the hiker. She became injured while climbing up the cliffs with another friend when a large rock fell and hit her in the knee.

Hunt was unable to make it down the cliff. Upon arrival, deputies were able to locate Hunt at a significant distance up the cliff face from the base.

“Iron County Sheriff’s Office Ropes Rescue and Search and Rescue teams were called out as was Gold Cross EMS services,” according to the release. “Rescue units had to trek approximately two miles up extremely rugged terrain to get to Kennedy.”

Despite the onset of a snow storm, the combined efforts of members of all the groups contributed to a successful rescue operation.

Hunt was attended to on scene by Gold Cross Ambulance then left the area in a private vehicle.
