MOOSE, Wyo. (AP) - Grand Teton National Park rangers took part in several rescues Sunday as summer tourist season approaches its peak.

Park officials say they used a helicopter to rescue a 39-year-old Spanish man who had hiked into Granite Canyon and became too exhausted to hike out.

Soon after, rangers began a 10-hour rescue of a 27-year-old Jackson woman who slipped and fell while climbing on Disappointment Peak.

Rescuers carried the woman more than five miles on a litter. An ambulance then took her to a hospital where her condition wasn’t immediately available Monday.

Rangers also rescued a 64-year-old man who fell from a horse in the Colter Bay area and they searched for a boater who disappeared after an accident on the Gros Ventre River. The boater was later found.
