Rescued Somis woman gives back to Search and Rescue team

VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. - Somis resident Judy Wurtz, 70, decided to thank the Ventura County Search and Rescue Team for rescuing her from an avocado orchard off of Old Balcom Canyon Road back in November 2016 the only way she knew how.

The Wurtz family donated a large format printer to the Ventura County Search and Rescue Team, the team posted on their Facebook page. The Search and Rescue team will be able to print their own high quality maps that played a very important role in search and rescue efforts to locate Judy.

Judy had been missing for at least four days before the team located her and airlifted her to the hospital for medical treatment.

The presentation also served as an opportunity for the team to meet Judy following her ordeal in November.
