A 15-year-old who was injured in a horse accident in Fremont County was rescued yesterday with the help of Sublette County Search and Rescue.
Sublette County Dispatch was notified of a request for assistance at about 4 p.m. yesterday. It was reported that a 15-year-old was injured in the mountains near Ross Lake, south of Dubois. Due to a malfunction with a Classic medical helicopter that attempted to fly in, no direct access in a timely fashion was available locally and the Dubois Search and Rescue I.C. requested the Sublette County short haul team to extract the injured from the area.
Sublette County’s Tip Top SAR Short Haul team was dispatched and flew to the scene per Dubois’ shared coordinates. The injured was packaged in a Stable Flight helicopter litter by TTSAR members and safely delivered to an awaiting ambulance crew for further care and transport. TTSAR members were able to return home, and the mission was complete by 9 p.m.
