It’s incredible how crucial time can be. While John was the main character in the novel, it was a collaborative effort involving the entire community!
The Santa Fe Fire Department thanked everyone engaged in the rescue in a post on Facebook.
“A special thanks to John Utsey, a hiker who discovered him disoriented and gave him food and drink. Special appreciation to the Atalaya search and rescue team, as well as Santa Fe rescue and Los Alamos rescue, for all of their assistance in safely removing the patient from the forest.”
