A National Park Service worker was injured when the mule he was riding bucked him off on an Arizona mountainofficials said.
He was packing equipment and supplies at Manning Camp in Saguro National Park on the morning of Tuesday, September 12, when it happened, Pima County Sheriff’s Department Search and Rescue officials said in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The camp “serves as a high-altitude base” for fire and natural resource studies, according to the National Park Service’s website.
It sits at 8,000 feet of elevation and “exists in a completely different climate than the desert scrub” at the Visitor Center, the website says.
Search and rescue officials airlifted the worker off the mountain in a helicopter, says the X-post.
Officials did not provide details about the worker’s condition or what, if anything, may have spooked the mule.
