On October 22nd, 2011, at approximately 1500 hours, CHP Helicopter 30 (H-30) was requested by the Solano County Fire Department to assist in locating an injured jet skier in the Montezuma Slough north of Grizzly Bay.  H-30 responded to the area and quickly located the party, a 40 year old male, floating along the water’s edge. H-30 immediately landed and rendered emergency first aid.  The U.S. Coast Guard, Solano County Fire Department and Solano Sheriff's Department all arrived shortly thereafter, in their boats, to assist the crew of H-30 with preparing the injured party for transport.  H-30 transported the injured party to John Muir Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries including a suspected broken leg.
