Injured Female at Hell's Half-acre

On June 12th at 9:41pm we were called to Hell's Half-acre, the lava hiking trail west of Idaho Falls, for a female hiker who had fallen into a crevasse and injured herself. She was able to call 911 who got GPS coordinates. Using her location, Life Flight was able to land nearby and hike over, but the terrain was too difficult for them to move her alone. Leaving the trail head at about 10:15pm, 24 SAR members hiked in about 2.5 miles and carried her another half mile back to the helicopter where she was flown to EIRMC at about 2:30am.
