Rescue crews spent six hours over the weekend helping a young man who was injured on Blue Mountain.
The Missoula Fire Department, the ,Missoula Rural Fire District and Life Flight worked together Friday night and into Saturday morning to get the 17-year-old off of the mountain, after he crashed on his dirt bike.
Rescue workers say they had to hike a mile from the helicopter to get to the young man. Then they had to wheel him up hill to get back to the Life Flight.
Responders say working together with multiple agencies made the rescue run smoothly.
?Any single agency could have got this job done; it would have just taken longer. But all three of us, we were able to have a lot of team work so, we were able to get this victim out quite a bit quicker than would have happened otherwise,? said the Missoula Fire Department?s John Petroff.
The Missoula Fire Department said they train frequently with the other agencies to prepare for rescue situations like this one.
