Response to August 2004 Accidents/Rescues

 

A climber became trapped at the Minnehaha climbing rocks on Tuesday and as rescue crews tried to get to her, they wound up having to rescue one of their own.
Rescuers say Lacy Davis was apparently climbing without gear and got stuck half way up a cliff. She yelled to people walking by and told them she was hurt.
Because of the rough and steep terrain, what's called a "technical rescue crew" went in after her.
Just before crews were ready to lower Davis from the cliff, one of the rescue workers collapsed on a nearby ledge. So a second team to come in and complete what turned into a double rescue mission.
The rescuer had heat stroke and is doing okay. Doctors say the climber is in satisfactory condition.
