Father, 5-year-old daughter rescued near Steamboat Springs

A father and his 5-year-old daughter were rescued late Friday night after they became separated from a snowmobile tour group in a mountainous area north of Steamboat Springs, officials say.

“They were a little cold, but none the worse for wear,” said Barry Worstell, a helicopter pilot with Classic Air Medical, a rescue business that opened a satellite office in Steamboat Springs last year.

Worstell, a former Army pilot who flew combat missions during Operation Desert Storm in Kuwait in 1991, spotted the pair around 10:20 p.m. in a snow-blanketed meadow next to a fire below Hahn’s Peak in Routt County, he said.



“They put themselves in a good spot,” Worstell said Saturday.

The man and girl who were rescued were on vacation from their home in London, said Barry Worstell, a helicopter pilot with Classic Air Medical, a rescue business that opened a satellite office a year ago. He didn’t recall their names.
