medical emergency on the way to the Adlerberg
COOK COUNTRY, MINNESOTA ~~ October 11, 2021 (LSNews) On Sunday, October 10, 2021, the Cook County Sheriff’s Office received a call for a person who had a medical emergency en route to Eagle Mountain. The call came in at 2:46 p.m. and the rescue workers arrived at the starting point around 3:30 p.m.
The responders began the walk to the patient, which was approximately 2 miles. Upon arrival and assessment of the patient, first responders began the drive back to the parking lot where the North Shore Health ambulance was stationed with other first responders. On the way back, the National Weather Service in Duluth reported a rotation in the clouds near Eagle Mountian, and as they moved on they were forced to take shelter under trees due to a hail storm.
The emergency services and the patient were able to continue after the storm and reached the parking lot at around 7:29 p.m. The patient was transported to St. Luke’s by ambulance. None of the emergency services was injured and everyone cleared the scene.
I cannot say enough or express my gratitude enough to our first responders and search and rescue personnel in Cook County. They accept the call of service without hesitation and without regard for themselves so that they can help others in need. Your dedication and selflessness are second to none and I sincerely thank you all.
Sheriff Pat Eliasen
