Search & Rescue (Tuesday, 9/11)

Posted Thursday, September 13th, 2018 at 11:07 AM

At about 6:00 p.m. Tuesday (9/11) evening, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office and Kingman Fire responded to a report of an all-terrain-vehicle accident in the area of Devil’s Dip near Kingman. Two hunters were scouting in the area at the time when they had come across an ATV that had rolled over and was still running. As they approached the ATV, they could see someone was pinned underneath it. The ATV rider was non-responsive and they called 911. Kingman Fire and River Medical were transported by the hunters to the scene, where it was determined that the 64-year-old male driver was deceased. Due to the remote access to the accident location, the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue and the Kingman DPS Ranger helicopter were activated to perform the technical recovery. The DPS Kingman Ranger performed a long-line haul from the scene to a landing zone, where he was transported to the Medical Examiner by search and rescue.
