Borrego Trail - 81 year old male required aid

On the afternoon of June 21Atalaya Search & Rescue was dispatched upon report of an 81-year old male that had fallen while hiking on the Borrego Trail just outside Santa Fe.  The reporting party, a hiker from a separate party, claimed the subject suffered only superficial physical injuries in the fall but that the subject had possibly become disoriented and may not be able to safely self-evacuate.  Three members of Atalaya Search & Rescue responded to help locate and evacuate the subject.  After searchers located the subject on the Borrego Trail the subject refused assistance and self evacuated.

Neither Atalaya Search & Rescue nor New Mexico Search & Rescue charge for the assistance we provide.
