YCSO Find A Man Who Was Yelling For Help Early Sunday At Lynx Lake In Prescott

Yavapai County Sheriff’s deputies, with help from EMT’s, searched for a man who reportedly was yelling for help early Sunday morning at Lynx Lake in Prescott. A deputy arrived at around 1 a.m. and listened for the yells, but wasn’t able to hear anything. He then drove to Enchanted Forest Trail, which is the area where the yelling was thought to be coming from. He could hear a faint yell for help coming from the woods, so the deputy took off on foot toward the voice. After about an hour of hiking he was able to locate the man, who was hunched over and in pain. The man stated he had sharp pains in his chest that were shooting down his left arm and he was cold. The deputy asked dispatch to send medical personnel to the closest location for staging, which was off Walker Road. The man was barely able to stand and was in no condition to walk, so when three additional deputies responded to the location in the woods, they began taking turns “fireman carrying” the man, in the dark and off trail, to get him to medical attention. He was transported to Yavapai Regional Medical Center in stable condition.
