Madera County requested assistance with recovering the remains of a male hiker who had fallen down a snowfield near Iceberg Lake, at the toe of the Minarets. His fall was arrested by rocks, and was unfortunately fatal.

CHP H40 transported a 2-member field team to the location, and the field team packaged the remains, lowered the package to a suitable LZ, and the remains were flown out. CHP H40 returned to extract the field team.
