Officer/Paramedic Bruce Harrolle was killed while performing a rescue of two stranded hikers.

At about 2:40 p.m. the Department of Public Safety Air Rescue Ranger Helicopter based in Flagstaff responded to a request from the Sedona Fire Department and the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office to assist with a search and rescue mission of two stranded and dehydrated hikers on Bear Mountain in the Bell Rock area. At about 3:18 p.m., Officer/Paramedic Harolle had loaded one hiker and was escorting the second patient into the chopper when he was struck by the helicopter's rotor blades and fatally injured. Both hikers were flown to safety.

It's the seven year anniversary of a fallen hero. Trooper Harrolle paid the ultimate sacrifice saving two stranded citizens in Northern Arizona. His legacy and memory lives on as his family continues to fight for the survivor benefits of fallen officers in Arizona. He would be proud of his wife Angela. We miss you brother!! I will serve you every day.
