Happening How: Rescue Underway Near Smyrna, Helo En Route

Smyrna – Rescue Crews from the Citizens Hose Company of Smyrna along with Kent County Medics and Trooper 4 have responded to Shorts Landing Road east of Smyrna for reports of an injured person.

Initial reports from the scene indicate that a subject is under a tree and can’t move their legs. It’s not clear if the subject has been trapped by the tree.

Crews have worked their way back to the subject’s location in a wooded area.

At 2:48 Trooper 4 alerted Kent Center that they have landed near the scene.
