Gibson Deer Hunter Rescued

From: Gibson County Sheriff's Department

Emergency personnel in Gibson County responded to a deer hunter's call for help Saturday evening, in the Big Four Bridge-Coffee Chute area, along the Wabash River, in west central Gibson County. Around 4:30 PM, Sunday, the Gibson County Sheriff's Department dispatch received information that Avery Manns, from Princeton, who was deer hunting, may be injured and was incapacitated and unable to seek medical attention.

The call first came in as a tree stand fall, but further information established health issues were the reason for the hunter's incapacitation. The Owensville Volunteer Fire Department, the Owensville Police Department, Medic 4-South Gibson Medical Service, Duke Energy Security, St. Mary's Life Flight, and Indiana Conservation Officers responded to the scene.

 Due to the remoteness of the area, initial contact by first responders was made on foot. Eventually, rescuers were able to reach 31-year-old Manns by all-terrain vehicle and transport him out of the woods to waiting medical units and St. Mary's Life Flight where he was then transported to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment.
