Woman evacuated after seizure on North Fork

Posted

A 64-year-old Kentucky woman was safely evacuated from the Wapiti area on Tuesday after she suffered a medical problem while out on a trail ride.

Elizabeth Manis was eating lunch with a group from the Rimrock Dude Ranch when she suffered a seizure, the Park County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.

The sheriff’s office was called around 10 a.m., with a Park County Search and Rescue ground team deployed to the area; they were accompanied by the Wilderness Medical Team from Cody Regional Healthcare. Rescue personnel reached Manis at about 11:17 a.m., roughly three-fourths of a mile south of the Rimrock Dude Ranch.

The Wilderness Medical Team treated and stabilized Manis while search and rescue personnel packaged and transported her to a waiting ambulance via a wheeled stretcher. The Raceland, Kentucky, resident was then taken to West Park Hospital for further treatment.
