Helicopter Makes Night Rescue as Flooding Sweeps Through Southern California

The San Bernardino County Fire made multiple swift water rescues on Thursday night, February 14, after rising floodwaters trapped individuals in Victorville, California, the County Fire District said in a statement.Video posted to the Fire District Facebook page shows the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Aviation unit assisting with the second rescue, which occurred around 7.15 pm.

In the footage, a rescuer can be seen hanging from a cable attached to the helicopter, holding a person as they are lifted to the opposite side of the swollen Mojave River.

The helicopter made two such extractions over the course of more than four hours, despite vegetation and tree canopy complicating the situation, according to the fire district.In an earlier rescue, nine individuals were saved from an island via boat after they became stranded.

In a video, emergency officials can be seen using a tow rope to control the rescue boat ferrying individuals back to dry land.Six people had to be rescued from flooded areas on February 14, emergency responders said.

Elsewhere in San Bernardino County, 15 people were airlifted to safety from the Santa Ana River amid high waters.
