SUTCLIFFE — Just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue personnel and the RAVEN helicopter responded to the area near the Sutcliffe Marina at Pyramid Lake for a water rescue of three juveniles who had been pushed toward the center of the lake.

While battling high winds and four-foot swells, RAVEN operators located the three juveniles inside a partially inflated raft about a quarter mile off the western shore. RAVEN operators established a low hover and lowered a basket down to each of the juveniles, who each were ultimately hoisted into the helicopter and safely returned to the boat ramp.
