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.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
