Default WHOOPS! Mountain biker rescued on Corral Creek Trail (ID)


Mountain biker rescued on Corral Creek Trail

Express staff
An injured mountain biker was rescued from the Corral Creek Trail east of Sun Valley around midday Monday.

According to Ketchum Fire Chief Mike Elle, crews were dispatched at 12:15 p.m. Monday for a technical rescue of an adult male mountain bike rider with an injury on the Corral Creek Trail near Uncle John’s Gulch. Elle said the reporting party was the son of a Ketchum volunteer firefighter who found the injured mountain biker while he was riding the Corral Creek Trail. Elle said the reporting party had to drive to Trail Creek Road to reach cell service to call 911.

According to scanner reports at the time, the injured rider had hip pain and couldn’t stand up. Elle said the rider was in the timber about 15 feet below the single-track trail.

Two paramedics arrived near the trail at 12:30 p.m., Elle said, and along with the reporting party, they made contact with the injured rider at 12:40 p.m. and began administering first aid. By 12:54 p.m., two emergency medical technicians and one paramedic reached the injured rider with a one-wheel litter basket to extricate the rider, he said.

The injured rider was in route to Saint Luke’s Wood River Medical Center via ambulance at 1:11 p.m., and he arrived at the hospital at 1:28 p.m., Elle said.

The rider was in stable condition, Elle said, which means a patient is “happy, stable*they’re happy to see us.” Elle could not comment on the nature of the man’s injuries because of medical privacy laws.

Elle, who himself rode the Corral Creek Trail on Sunday, encouraged people recreating in the outdoors to take safety precautions.

“We need people to be very careful when they’re out recreating,” he said. “Try to have somebody with you to go for help, and a means of communication.”
