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.

Officer/Paramedic Harrolle was a nine year veteran of the Arizona Department of Public Safety. He is survived by his wife, two young children, and parents.

You are always remembered. The daring rescues that would have most seasoned patrol officers terrified hanging from a helicopter on a motorized cable line to rescue others on a regular basis. You saved countless lives and we are so grateful! Thank you Officer / Medic Harolle.
