    This article was published August 31,2014 concerning possibly outdated equipment that was used by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Search and Rescue unit. Even at the date of publishing some members of the rescue community still were of the opinion that the non locking hook that had been in use for over 50 years was still safe. The initial NTSB report did not address the use of this device and the file had been closed with no conclusive evidence on what caused the accident.
