Injured skier returns to thank rescuers

The Lutsen Ski Patrol and Cook County Ambulance frequently responds to injureis at Lutsen Mountains Ski Area. Most of the injuries are relatively minor, but occasionally there are serious injuries. And unfortunately, the emergency responders often don’t know how the patient fares after they deliver them to a medical facility. 

That is not the case for a rescue five years ago. Injured skier Robyn Block made a return trip recently. She shares her story with WTIP, thanking some of the many people involved in her rescue, such as Lutsen Ski Patrol members Phil Larson, Matt Kartes, Corey Belt, Courtney Johnson and Steve DuChien of the Cook County Ambulance.

Here's Rhonda Silence with Robyn.
