Flight For Life
Forty-five members of the Summit County Rapid Avalanche Deployment Team were honored by the sheriff on Tuesday.
The Avalanche danger in the high country is high right now and rescuers need to be ready when someone gets trapped in a slide. CBS4′s Jeff Todd was invited behind the scenes to bring a close up look at the vital training.
It’s a new tool that could save lives in the mountains — a medical helicopter with a sensor that can zero in on people trapped in an avalanche.
A Denver woman is in a hospital after her rescue from a 13,000-foot peak. It’s a rescue she says was delayed 14 hours because of Flight For Life.
