Mountain Biker Rescued After Fall: South Cottonwood Canyon
It was a scary Tuesday for a 57 year old female mountain biker after she apparently fell 30 feet down an embankment on a South Cottonwood Canyon trail.
Thankfully, there was initial help on the trail from another mountain biker with first responder experience. That person was able to hear the injured woman, locate her, check on her and ride his bike to get cell service.
Gallatin County Sear and Rescue then responded along with Gallatin Gateway Fire & Rescue. They were able to get the woman down the trail on a "one wheeled litter".
From there, her husband was able to take the woman to an Urgent Care facility. Details on any injuries were not given.
Kudos to the fellow mountain biker who was quick to help the injured woman and Thank You as always to our talented Search and Rescue crews.
