David Shlim, William Mook and I share a collaborated community and TCSAR effort to save the life of David life after he experiences a heart attack in the backcountry.

A Jackson resident with a long history of rescuing others suddenly finds himself at the mercy of a community of strangers on Teton Pass in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Once the head of the Himalayan Rescue Association in Nepal, Dr. David Shlim treated all of the survivors of the 1996 Everest expedition detailed in Jon Krakauer’s book, “Into Thin Air.”
