Another Teton Rescue

(GRAND TETON, N.P.) – It seems like every week another climber is rescued in Grand Teton National Park, and this week was no exception. A 43-year-old Wisconsin man was on the approach to the southeast ridge of the Middle Teton on Tuesday morning when he pulled off a loose block of rock and fell about 15 feet. Park officials say Steven Zaleski of Madison had to be evacuated by helicopter to a hospital in Jackson. His condition has not been released.
