Three men riding snowmobiles near the Utah-Idaho line were caught in an avalanche Saturday afternoon. One of the men suffered broken bones.
A dispatcher with the Bear Lake County, Idaho, Sheriff's Office said the men were riding snowmobiles in the St. Charles/Green Canyon area about 1 p.m. when the avalanche occurred. Most of the men's ages and identities were not immediately available, but the injured man was 28.
One man suffered a broken arm and two broken femurs in the slide and was suffering from shock, a dispatcher said. Initially, a helicopter was dispatched to the scene but was canceled because of low visibility in the area.
