Locals, who collaborated with first responders at the scene, said Hill had suffered a blow to the forehead and complained of severe pain in the stomach.

For its part, the Red Cross confirmed that the patient suffered an abdominal trauma. In coordination with the Air Surveillance Service (SVA) of the Ministry of Public Security (MSP), Hill was choppered out to hospital in Ciudad Quesada, in San Carlos.

Weather hindered air transport to San Jose.

The helicopter is the same Air Surveillance Service posted in the northern zone on Friday to aid in the monitoring of the northern border.
