More than 20 team members were called to assist in search and rescue efforts on a popular fourteener summit.
According to a Facebook post from El Paso County Search and Rescue, rescue crews have experienced difficulty evacuating two subjects on the north side of Pikes Peak. One of the two subjects is possibly suffering from a broken ankle and head injury.
A total of 23 team members have responded to the 12-plus hour rescue mission. Multiple agencies are on the scene including El Paso County Search and Rescue, Teller County Search and Rescue, Flight For Life, and Army Reserve Aviation Medivac.
The exact location of the 14er rescue remains unclear.
Pikes Peak, nicknamed “America's Mountain," is one of the most famous peaks in the nation. The 14,115-foot fourteener is located in Pike National Forest, about 12 miles west of downtown Colorado Springs.
This is a developing story.
