"We had to clear some small trees and move him to a suitable extraction zone," Brownell said. "We then placed ground-to-air signals and even with that we were hard to see from the ground - to say the least, this made the rescue even more challenging. Due to the denseness of the vegetation, I had to then talk the crew to our exact location."

Once the helicopter arrived overhead, the flight engineer, Tech. Sgt. Steven Perez, lowered a Stokes litter 210 feet down to retrieve Metzger. Following that, Brownell was hoisted into the aircraft and they flew to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Wash., where he was stabilized and is now doing fine.

"I am extremely grateful for my fellow students and rescue crew who helped me through this," Metzger said. "Without the fast speed at which I was evacuated, I don't know how I'd be right now - it's pretty safe to say they saved my life."
