Mountain-style Rescue at a Construction Site

Glenwood Rescue

About 15 members of Teton County Search and Rescue joined with about a dozen members of Jackson Hole Fire/EMS Friday to evacuate an injured man at a construction site in downtown Jackson.  According to Teton County Undersheriff Bob Gilliam, at about 3:00 pm, 22 year-old Cody Durban of Billings, Montana had slipped off the scaffolding at a construction site about a half block south of Deloney on Glenwood Avenue and fell all the way to the basement.  Gilliam says the fall was a total of 20 to 25 feet.  In order to extricate Durbin from the hole, fire officials called the search and rescue team to employ their high-angle evacuation methods and equipment.  Gilliam says rescue workers loaded Durbin onto a backboard and raised him with ropes to ground-level.  From there, he was placed into an ambulance and taken to St. John ‘s Medical Center for treatment.  There was no word on the extent of his injuries.
