Video: National Guard Rescuer Helps Save Life, Breaks Leg
Members of the Alpine Rescue Team, the Rocky Mountain Rescue Group, Flight for Life Colorado, and Colorado Army National Guardsmen from the 2nd Battalion, 135th General Support Aviation worked in tandem to rescue injured climbers in the Indian Peaks mountain range in Clear Creek County, Colo. Sept. 7, 2012. Sterling Roop, one of a group of three experienced mountain climbers, suffered head trauma and other injuries after falling approximately forty to fifty feet during his ascent of Mount Bancroft. A National Guardsman ended the day needing to be rescued himself. (Video by Adam Pérou Hermans/Used with permission) Available in High Definition.
