Park respond to multiple emergencies; 2 dead, 1 injured
JACKSON HOLE, WYO – Grand Teton National Park officials have announced multiple emergencies within the Park on Thursday, June 20, as park rangers responded to back-to-back rescues, two resulting in fatalities.
At 11 a.m. rangers responded to a Teton County request for assistance to a 56 year-old Buffalo Valley man in cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead after nearly an hour of resuscitation.
Later in the afternoon, rangers responded to a call for help from a location on Mount Owen (12,928 feet) for an injured climber. Lander climber, Jeff Judkins was injured when a large chunk of rock he was climbing on broke free. He fell nearly 10 feet. Two park rangers extricated him to Lupine Meadows around 5 p.m.
Shortly after the Judkins rescue, Teton Interagency Dispatch Center received a call to rescue a climber on the North Fork of Garnet Canyon who had fallen into a moat. Six rangers were flown in to the moat area and rescued 55 year-old Gary Miller from Colorado via short haul to Lupine Meadows.
Miller was eventually air lifted to Idaho Falls where he was pronounced dead that evening.
