An injured snowmobiler was rescued in the Lake Wenatchee area yesterday afternoon. Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett reports the 23 year old identified as Alexandra Corbal was part of a guided group traveling on a groomed trail when she crashed into a tree after losing control of the machine. Corbal suffered multiple injuries and was treated at Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth.
In an unrelated case, search and rescue crews were called out last night after another snowmobiler became separated from group outing in the Chiwawa Loop Road area. Sheriff's department spokesman, Kent Sisson says the search was launched at about 6:15 pm. The man was located about 10:45 pm. He was cold but otherwise ok.
