SEDRO WOOLLEY, Wash. – The death of a volunteer during a Pilchuck Falls rescue may be the first of its kind in the state.

Search and rescue volunteer J.B. Bryson of Sedro Woolley and Hiker Peder Trettevik of Stanwood both died Saturday night.

Chad Clark with the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office says says it appears Trettevik slipped and fell on a steep part of the trail and Bryson fell off the edge of a cliff while helping in the rescue.

He says this seems to be the first time a search and rescue volunteer has died in the line of duty.

 

Clark says they are investigating to find out if anything could be done to prevent this kind of tragedy from happening again.
