A busy week in Gallatin County.
At approximately 9:15 pm, Gallatin County Dispatch received a report of a 19-year-old female about to have a seizure on the steep trail to the “M.” The female, who was with a friend, lost consciousness while sheriff’s deputies, an American Medical Response (AMR) ambulance, Bridger Canyon Fire, and Sheriff’s Search and Rescue responded to the scene. Rescuers hiked to the still unconscious female and provided first aid. Rescuers then transported the female back to the parking lot with a specialized wheeled backcountry rescue litter. The female, who had eventually regained consciousness, lost consciousness again during the transport back to the parking lot. AMR transported her to Bozeman Health Hospital.
On Sunday, June 25, the Sheriff’s Search and Rescue teams rescued a family of rafters who ran into trouble on the Gallatin River near Gallatin Gateway. On Monday, rescuers responded to a female that needed evacuation after being kicked by a horse in the Spanish Peaks Wilderness.
On Tuesday, June 27, search and rescue members participated in an approximately six-hour long search for a reported missing person at the Sourdough Canyon Trailhead.
