Services Held For Wyoming Rescuer Killed In Crash

As authorities scrambled to mount a rescue for a downed Teton County Search and Rescue helicopter Feb. 15, one injured team member pulled his two companions free of the wreckage.

Authorities say Fire/EMS Chief Mike Moyer dragged pilot Ken Johnson and volunteer team member Ray Shriver from the mangled Bell 407 airship after it crashed in the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

They tell the Jackson Hole News & Guide that Shriver was alive when Moyer pulled him out but then died of internal injuries.

Moyer and Johnson both used crutches to attend Shriver’s memorial service Tuesday in Jackson. The service drew about 500 people.

County offices in Teton County were closed so employees could attend the service.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the crash. The helicopter was responding to a separate snowmobile accident in which another man died.
