Rocky Mountain House Search and Rescue came to the aid of two women who were stranded overnight by Nordegg on Saturday.
The group sent three members to a remote location to stay with two stranded women on Saturday night, until they could be safely removed by helicopter on Sunday morning.
Rocky Search and Rescue director Ed Van Heeren said the group had to stay overnight because the terrain was too difficult to remove the women by helicopter and they were 760 metres (2,500 feet) above the nearest highway to use as a helicopter landing zone.
He added the three search and rescue volunteers hiked up to meet the stranded women to keep them stable and give them supplies.
It is believed one of the women was suffering from a broken leg.
Van Heeren said that the next morning, Kananaskis Country rangers met the group to help with the extraction.
Story developing, more to come.
