SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK
Rangers Successfully Intervene In Attempted Suicide
Ranger Stuart Curtin came upon a suspicious vehicle parked at a pullout Skyline Drive on the morning of Saturday, November 3rd. An unresponsive man was found inside the locked vehicle, along with a suicide note and several empty pill bottles. Rangers Curtin and Dave Sanders broke a window to gain entry and provided basic medical care until Warren County EMS arrived on scene. The man was taken to a local hospital and then transferred to Winchester Medical Center, where he spent two days in intensive care. Evidence suggested that the man swallowed a large amount of prescription pain medication.
