Rescuer Dies In Helicopter Crash

Shriver

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 about 2:00 pm Wednesday while responding to a snowmobile incident near Togwotee Mountain .  County officials have identified 63-year-old Ray Shriver as the rescuer who died in that crash.  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. Upon departure from the scene, the helicopter proceeded south, back toward Jackson, and apparently experienced mechanical problems.  It disappeared over a ridge and the snowmobile party being aided contacted the county dispatch about the situation.  County and Grand Teton National Park rescuers then made their way to the scene, aided by two other helicopters and brought the stricken rescuers out.  Shriver was one of the founding members of Teton County Search and Rescue.
