On August 13, 2019, the Team received a report of a 68-year-old male who had activated an SOS on a satellite device for general malaise, lethargy, and other symptoms of AMS near Agnew Lake. The Team responded to the Rush Creek Trailhead.
Two field teams left the trailhead in anticipation of a litter carryout, but Field Team 1 located the subject and his traveling companion on the trail below Agnew Lake where they were slowly advancing down the trail. Field Team 1 escorted the subject down the trail, meeting with Field Team 2. All field teams and the subject and his companion walked under their own power to the trailhead. A Mono County medic unit transported the subject to Mammoth Hospital for treatment.
