A 32 year-old woman was rescued from the south side of the Hoback River about 1½ miles south of Hoback Junction Thursday night after she fell about 15 feet from a cliff onto rocks below.  Teton County Undersheriff  Bob Gilliam says bringing the unidentified woman to safety became a bit of a cooperative effort.  He says the county’s search and rescue team was initially dispatched to the scene; however, before they arrived, deputies, ambulance crews and members of the Jackson Hole Fire/EMS were able to get the woman down.  Then, with the assistance of some rafters who were in the area, got her across the river to a waiting ambulance.  She was then transported to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment. Gilliam says the exact nature of her injuries was unclear, but they were not considered life-threatening.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
