    From the St Catharines Standard:

    It’s a sure sign of summer for Niagara’s emergency workers.

    Calls for high-angle rescues of hikers or tourists come in just about every week. There were two in one day in St. Catharines during a recent weekend.

    Some are mundane — a lost hiker who needs some direction and help up a steep slope. Others are dramatic, such as the high-flying rescue in Niagara Falls in May where a Niagara Parks Police officer was suspended from a helicopter above the Niagara River while helping an injured man in the water.

    “When they are off trail, it’s a naturally hazardous situation,” said Niagara Parks Police Insp. Paul Forcier.
