Rangers responded to a badly hurt person discovered in the outdoors on Monday morning in Grand Teton National Park with what “appeared to be self-inflicted wounds,” officials said.
Park visitors alerted Colter Bay rangers to the injured person around 8:30 a.m. in the Moran area. They responded and called in medical assistance.
“That person has been treated and has been transported to Idaho Falls,” Teton Park Chief of Staff Jeremy Barnum said. “There’s no public safety concerns at this time.”
Park officials provided no details about the person’s identity, such as sex or place of residence. The individual’s family, residents of Utah, were notified following the incident.
