Saturday afternoon, Josephine County Search and Rescue teams converged on Hellgate Canyon to conduct their annual Rope Rescue training.

This time, the Rope Rescue teams used their UAV drone to find dummies before pulling them out of the canyon.

In the pictures attached above, SAR personnel can be seen locating the dummies using video gathered by the drone over Hellgate Canyon.

In June, one person died and another was seriously injured after a vehicle went over an embankment at the Canyon.
