Idaho Woman Rescued After Snowmobile Plummet

News Jan 29, 2013

SALMON - A Salmon area woman was airlifted to a Montana hospital with unknown injuries Monday after the snowmobile she was operating spun off a cliff and plummeted 100 feet to the ground below, authorities said.

Callie Miller, 44, was snowmobiling out from a family mine in the Salmon-Challis National Forest near Spring Creek when she slid off the edge of a snow slide she was attempting to cross and plunged into a ravine, according to the Lemhi County Sheriff's Office.

Miller's snowmobile traveled several hundred additional yards until it crashed into a tree, Lemhi County Deputy Tom Whitson said.

Family members who were traveling with Miller alerted the sheriff's office and extricated her from the mangled 1986 snow machine before authorities, emergency medical workers and Salmon Search and Rescue arrived at the scene shortly after 8:30 a.m..

Miller was taken by helicopter to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Mont., later that morning. JoAnn Hoven, a spokeswoman at St. Patrick Hospital, said that Miller was in serious condition.
