Oh, right - I forgot about that. HC was a half mile from the Grotto shuttle dropoff place not the park entrance. So when she was rescued she walked the half mile to the Grotto, with a ranger following her, stopping every 5 feet to rest. Then what? Did she and her family members sit and wait for the shuttle to take them back to their car? And all the while HC was dehydrated, had failing kidneys, bruised all over, had concussion and was disoriented, had foot injuries from the cold, and whatever else we'll hear about in the future? I'd sure like to have some of that adrenalin... seriously though it seems dangerous and maybe even irresponsible to delay the trip to the hospital just because HC was traumatized and didn't want to be transported. She also declined either an MRI or a CAT scan at the hospital - IMO a dangerous choice. Hard to believe - at that point they had 10k from the *** so why not use that to have her treated properly? From October 22: "It's just so blown blown out of proportion," Strong said. "When you think you're going to die and you see a ranger, she said she literally got like giddy inside because she knew she was going to see her daughter and her family, so you definitely have some adrenaline working for you at that point." She said Courtier had a ranger standing behind her in case she fell from weakness and had to stop every 5 feet to sit down and rest. Courtier was taken to the hospital by her family, not an ambulance. "She was very scared and traumatized, and she wanted to leave the park in my car with me and my husband and her daughter, and we drove her straight to the emergency room, so things have just been twisted," Strong said.
