On Monday, August 12, 2019, at 11:59 pm, the Team received a report of an SOS activation from a one-way Spot device (the device could not accept incoming messages) that was registered to an 87-year-old male. None of the emergency numbers provided for the Spot device was answered.
The device indicated that the location was near the shore of Greenstone Lake, just west of Saddlebag Lake. The Mono County Sheriff’s Office provided a boat and a deputy to pilot, and transported the field teams across Saddlebag Lake.
The subject was located, and his wife reported that he had suffered seizures, and the subject complained of muscle cramping. The subject was assessed, and transported to the shore of Saddlebag Lake via wheeled litter, and then by Sheriff’s Office boat to the Saddlebag Lake Resort, where he was transferred to the care of Mono County Medics. The medics transported the subject to Mammoth Hospital.
