A snowmombiler was seriously injured in an accident in the Jackman area and endured a seven-mile snowmobile rescue trip before he was flown by helicopter to Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston Friday night, according to Jackman Fire Chief Bill Jarvis.
Jarvis said Moose River firefighters and EMTs from the Jackman Area Volunteer ambulance service brought the snowmobiler from the accident site by the fire department's snowmobile the seven miles to a waiting ambulance at the Lake Parlin Lodge in Parlin Pond Township. From there he was taken by ambulance to the airport in Jackman, where he was flown by LIfeflight helicopter to the Lewiston hospital.
