Members of Park County, Montana Search and Rescue aided by the Yellowstone National Park Helicopter with an EMT and Medic on board located and rescued two injured hikers near the summit of Granite Peak Northeast of Cooke City in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness. According to Sergeant Tom Totland of the Park County Sheriff’s Office, 60-year-old Darrell Haag and 18-year-old Keiler Haag of California had been struck in the legs by rocks from a rock slide Thursday as the two were ascending the mountain with four others. Toland says a search for the injured hikers was launched after the climbing party alerted them of the accident by 911 Friday evening. Three women with the group took refuge in an ice cave and were not injured. A third male hiked out to seek cell service and call for help. After being returned to the climbing party’s base camp18-year-old Keiler was airlifted to St. Vincent Hospital in Billings while 60-year-old Darrell rode there in the family car. As of Sunday evening, there was no word on the condition of the two men.
