County SAR Conducts Two Rescues Tuesday

It was a busy day for Teton County Search and Rescue personnel with two individual incidents within three hours of each other Tuesday.  The first was launched about 11:30 am when a call came in reporting a solo backpacker who had injured his ankle while in the Two Ocean Lake area and could not continue out on his own.  Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says 56 year-old Bernard Goldwater of Pagosa Springs, Colorado had stayed overnight before encountering a second person in the area who hiked to a place from where he could make a cell phone call for help.  County SAR members on board the forest contract helicopter flew to his location and airlifted him out.  Then at 2:20, 20 year-old man participating in a seven-day trip in the Tetons with the Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute became ill in the back country.  Group leader Jacob Urban who is also a Search and Rescue member and a wilderness medicine trainer provided initial treatment for Conner Smale of San Mateo, California and contacted the county via a satellite communication system.  The call drew a response from the forest helicopter and fellow SAR members who airlifted Smale out of the back country.  Both patients were transported to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment.
