Well, a SPOT was my primary alert device as I was giving a client of mine CPR after he collapsed at 10,800. I administered CPR for well over an hour awaiting help.
It never came.
I pronounced Jack dead at 1448 24 July 2009.
Wish they would have come.
Autopsy results confirmed that Jack died of HAPE.
that is a legit reason to call in a rescue, that's really to bad they didn't come.
but for the people who call in a rescue because their water tasted salty 3 times in as many days...
that's just insane.
