Global Rescue Evacuates Bear Hunter From Remote Camp In Kamchatka, Russia
Kamchatka, Russia –-(Ammoland.com)- While hunting brown bear deep in the forests of Russia's Kamchatka peninsula, a Global Rescue member severely injured his leg leaving him in need of medical evacuation.
Global Rescue evacuated the member to a local hospital for stabilization and ultimately to his home hospital of choice.
Global Rescue launched a helicopter to extract the 63-year-old man from the remote camp to a hospital in Petropavlovsk Kamchatskiy, where he was diagnosed with a badly fractured leg and torn ligaments.
After the leg was immobilized, Global Rescue physicians evaluated the results of the member's x-rays and approved him for travel.
The member was then evacuated by Global Rescue's medical personnel to his home hospital of choice in St. Louis, Missouri for follow-on care.
Global Rescue made arrangements to have the member's weapon accompany him on his flight home and to have his bear skin sent to a taxidermist near his home in St. Louis.
