Seriously Injured Man Medevaced From Park

Rocky Mountain National Park

National Park News

On April 4th, park dispatch received a cell phone call reporting that a man had fallen about ten feet near Alberta Falls and suffered numerous traumatic injuries. Park rangers and medics arrived on scene and provided advanced medical care. Alberta Falls is roughly a mile from the Glacier Gorge Trailhead. The 39-year-old man from Indiana was carried in a litter to Bear Lake Road, where he was transferred to an ambulance from Estes Park Medical Center. The man was then taken to Glacier Basin Campground, where an air ambulance from North Colorado Med Evac flew him to Medical Center of the Rockies.
