An Automated External Defibrillator that is kept at the Sheep Gulch Boat Ramp at the end of a popular whitewater stretch along the Snake River managed was recently stolen along with a dry bag, backboard straps, neck braces and head chocks for the backboard. “The AED that they took is the unit that gave the 16-year old another chance at life,” says Bridger-Teton National Forest River Ranger David Cernicek, referring to a river rescue August 3rd last summer where River Rangers met a group with a 16 – year old youth who had no heart beat. They successfully got his heart beating again through use of the AED from the Sheep Gulch boat ramp. The unit was purchased with donations from the Snake River Fund to be available in just such emergencies. The Forest Service asks that anyone with information about the missing equipment call them at 739-5417.
