SEARCH AND RESCUEMohave County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Units were deployed early Saturday (12/27) evening to rescue a 23-year-old male subject who became stuck after climbing 200 feet up a 300 foot rock face.  At about 4:10 p.m., the Sheriff’s Office dispatch center received a call from the National Park Service requesting SAR assistance in the White Rock Canyon. Shortly thereafter, the Search and Rescue Technical Rope Team of 10 volunteers were deployed to the area approximately 4 miles south of Hoover Dam.  Upon arrival, SAR members lowered the male subject to safety.  The male subject was in good health.
