    Its the pelvis injuries that are the problem. Rugged terrain and approaching darkness are not fun for the rescuers but the pelvis is highly vasculated and blood loss can be a problem far beyond any orthopedic problems. Cell phone, heavily travelled trail. Shouldn’t be much of a problem.

    Hopefully will turn out ok…I factured my pelvis in 5 places and my femur in 3…it is heavy trauma to the body. I can’t imagine being isolated for any length of time in that condition…aye yi yi!
