    InReach aren't as accurate vas an EPIRB. I did say that to him. EPIRB takes us to within mtrs of the pt, InReach we have to chase around a bit looking. We have had a few issues with them.
    But InReach has messaging. Something that would be good on all rescue devices.

    Just discussed this with my daughter, she had mentioned the definite snap I sensed which I now assume was interpreted as a break.

    With the swelling at the ankle and bruising below the ankle towards toes and bottom of foot I would say a fracture is likely now as well, (There was no x-ray taken) but the soft tissue injury in the calf is definitely the crippling factor.

    I wouldn’t read too much into it.
    It’s mostly irrelevant given you weren’t getting out of there by any other means. It would have been an awful long and painful carry for you by a ground crew.
    Your situation met the criteria to dispatch the helicopter and that’s all that matters.
