GRAND COUNTY, Utah, March 13, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Grand County EMS rescued a climber trapped about 40 feet off the ground Friday night after it was called in to help Grand County Search and Rescue to help the person, who was stuck on a rock ledge.

“SAR soon determined that the safest way to rescue the individual was to use a large extension ladder,” says a Facebook post by Grand County EMS.

“Moab Valley Fire was called and five firefighters hiked in a 35-foot extension ladder. The patient was safely brought down after being stuck for two hours.”
