Injured Woman Rescued Near Natural Waterslide on Shasta Lake

In an impressive display of teamwork and swift action, first responders came to the rescue of an injured woman who had fallen in a canyon on the west side of Lake Shasta, just north of Shasta Dam, near the Little Backbone Creek natural waterslide.

The Shasta County Sheriff’s Office Boating Safety Unit, led by deputies, wasted no time in responding to the scene. Arriving at the west end of the Little Backbone Creek inlet around 3 p.m. on Tuesday, they discovered the woman approximately a quarter of a mile from shore.

Calling for additional support, the deputies collaborated with a California Highway Patrol helicopter crew and firefighters from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. Together, they orchestrated a daring airlift operation to rescue the injured woman from the canyon. The seamless coordination among these dedicated first responders was truly commendable, according to Mapes.

Once safely airlifted out of the canyon, the woman was transferred to a waiting boat. Rescuers skillfully navigated the vessel to the Centimudi Boat Launch near Lake Boulevard in Redding. There, medical personnel swiftly transferred her into an awaiting ambulance that transported her to a nearby hospital. Authorities confirmed that, fortunately, the woman’s injuries did not appear to be life-threatening. Sheriff Mike Johnson reassured the public, stating,

“She will be OK in the long run,” during a press briefing on Wednesday morning.

The Little Backbone Creek natural waterslide on Shasta Lake has become a top destination for NorCal adventurers on sunny days. The smooth waterfall is the ultimate natural waterpark in the area. You can either hike or use a kayak to access the waterslide.
