Climber Rescued In Grand Teton National Park

Rangers Fund

Grand Teton National Park rangers were called to rescue a 37 year-old Houston, Texas man who had fallen while descending the South Fork of Garnet Canyon Sunday afternoon.  Park Spokesperson Jenny Anzelmo-Sarles says Pratip Bhattacharya sustained an isolated injury in the fall that prevented him from continuing any further. Grand Teton National Park rangers responded to the South Fork by helicopter, provided emergency medical care and stabilized Bhattacharya. He was short-hauled from his location to the Lupine Meadows rescue cache where he was transported park ambulance and to St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson.  Sarles says another rescue Thursday evening had involved a 76 year-old Atlanta, Georgia man who had been hiking with a friend and became unable to return on his own power.
