I assumed he meant that it was unfortunate that there was an accident and SAR was needed. I know it's easy to misread something and putting foot in mouth, maybe that happened here?

In any case, sounds like a successful rescue, and hopefully will be a speedy recovery for the injured party.

The fall was unfortunate. Surviving it was fortunate

"The fall was unfortunate. Surviving it was fortunate"
In this case, switching "unfortunate" with "fortunate" would have been its own disaster altogether.
