The Teton County Coroner has confirmed that there was a fatality of a Search and Rescue member who was on board the helicopter that crashed shortly after 3:00 pm Wednesday while responding to a snowmobile incident near Togwotee Mountain .  The name of the victim is still being withheld pending notification of family members.  Meanwhile, the other two on board the helicopter have been transported to St. John’s Medical Center for treatment of their injuries. The county’s search and rescue contract helicopter crash-landed about 6.7 miles south of Togwotee Mountain Lodge.  The helicopter, with pilot and two rescue personnel on board, was responding to the report the snowmobile incident at the time. Due to the remote location, information and details regarding the incident are slow to become available for release.  Law enforcement and rescue crews are still on scene in the Togwotee pass area, but crews hope to be returning from the scene tonight. Teton County Sheriff Jim Wahlen who is in Cheyenne to speak with legislators says he plans to return to Jackson immediately.
