Rocky Mountain National Park (CO)
Woman Airlifted From Chasm Lake Area
On Sunday afternoon, June 15th, park staff received a 911 call reporting that a woman, hometown unknown, had taken a reported 65-foot tumbling, sliding fall on the snowfield between Chasm Junction and Chasm Lake.
Members of the park’s search and rescue team reached the 56-year-old woman early that evening, just two hours after the incident was initially reported. She had numerous injuries. Team members conducted a technical rescue and raised her in a litter back to the snow covered trail. She was carried in a litter to Chasm Meadows and was flown by Flight For Life® Colorado to a hospital in Lakewood, Colorado.
