Brentwood resident Lacy Endicott, 24, is recovering after spending two nights trapped in a ravine in Mt. Rainier National Park, KPLR reports.
Endicott told friends she slipped off a trail while trying to take a photo. She spent Sunday night in a hollow tree after trying unsuccessfully to climb back up. National Park Ranger Kevin Bacher said a 26 person team began searching Monday after she was reported missing. The rescue took nine hours after she was found.
Endicott’s former co-workers at the Mid County YMCA had spread the word she was missing. “She is such a trooper about everything in life,” Gesa DeGreef said Tuesday. “I’m sure she had a really positive attitude about everything that was going on.”
