A Tough Call
It sounds like a Life Flight helicopter is on standby in case once they locate the victim, there's a possibility of hoisting him out. The state helicopter is called. The Utah Department of Public Safety has an Aero Bureau, and they are often active in Search and Rescue operations. They also do one skid hover "landings" — a crazy maneuver where they put one skid of the copter down on a rock ledge, but don't land completely. It's useful in cliff areas, but not all helicopter agencies allow it.
Early on, in researching this project, I was shocked by how many body recoveries SAR volunteers have to do. They deal with it by focusing on reuniting a missing person with their loved one, by giving somebody closure, by focusing on the survivors, and providing a service. The victim's name is released later that afternoon. Greg Bronder, 40, of Tooele, Utah. Husband, father, avid climber, and volunteer firefighter.
