The Bannock County Search and Rescue team were descending on ropes down an embankment. At the bottom, two people were trapped in a car. Around five years ago, two people were driving up East Mink Creek before their car went off the road and rolled down a 50 foot embankment. The passengers were pinned in the car, and the search and rescue team were on their way to save them. Thanks to new equipment acquired by the team, they were descending down the embankment around 20 minutes faster than normal. “Twenty minutes doesn’t seem like a lot, but that’s a significant portion of time when you’re talking about trying to get somebody to a hospital,” said Brayden Danner, Equipment Officer with Search and Rescue.
