BLANCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Skagit County rescue crews helped two hikers who fell while trying to climb down to Samish Bay near Blanchard, Washington.

The Skagit Valley Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2stNzPS ) search and rescue crews, firefighters and crews from BNSF Railway responded to a 911 call at 2:11 p.m. Wednesday.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Tobin Meyer says a man and woman who live outside the state called for help after falling on the hillside below Chuckanut Drive.

The woman reportedly had an arm injury and the man a leg injury.

Rescue crews lowered the hikers to the BNSF tracks.

Once there BNSF crews used a truck to transport them to Taylor Shellfish Farms, where they would have access to Chuckanut Drive.
