Both the Kelowna and West Kelowna fire departments were called out to assist a stranded hiker on the south face of Mount Boucherie early Sunday afternoon.

The hiker was apparently walking down a steep face of the mountain when the winter conditions left him unable to walk up or down the mountain.

The man called 9-1-1 to seek assistance. The Kelowna fire department high angle rescue team were able to rescue the hiker, with a helicopter also on stand-bye in case it was needed.
