Heart Patient Evacuated From Wilderness

EIRMC

Teton County Search and Rescue responded to a call in the Teton Wilderness near “Dead Horse Pass” just west of the Grand Teton National Park boundary Friday.  Undersheriff Bob Gilliam says the man needing assistance was reported to be suffering from a heart condition.  Gilliam says the unidentified man, described only as in his 70s, was in a small group of hikers that included a doctor.  Initially, Gilliam says the call came in as a “spot” activation at shortly before 3:00 pm and was cancelled as the Interagency helicopter was en-route.  The spot was re-activated at 5:17 pm and the helicopter from Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center was sent, completing the evacuation of the patient and transporting him to St. Johns Medical Center.  Rescue personnel we not sent to the scene as helicopter flights were sent to the area instead. There is no further information about the man’s condition.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
