Saved this guys life out on the trail today

So there we were driving up the trail having a great time and then bam we were in a really bad situation out in the middle of the mountains.
Apparently this guy and his girlfriend were tring to rock crawl on their atv riding double (on a 1 up atv) without helmets when all a sudden it flips back over on them.
His girlfriend said the atv stood up on the rear just long enough for the guy to push his gf outta the way then the atv came down right on his head.
Half of his scalp was MISSING and his skull was completely exposed and he was losing blood rapidly. When we got to them he had a blood drenched shirt wrapped around his head so we used ALOT of gauze that im glad i had in the jeep and bandaged him up properly.
Luckily i had my Spot locator because we had no service, I pressed 911 and 30 min later the chopper arived along with 5 fire trucks that were at the trail head when we exited.
This happened almost 6 hours ago and im still rattled about it but im very impressed about the response time of the fire dept and the flight for life those guys did a great job.

Oh my lord. Good job man. After hearing this I really think I should get a Spot Locator gizmo. You just never know when you might use it.

Thank you all. The spot locators are worth it for sure you just never know when you or someone else might need it. I have no information on the guy we didn't trade any info and I didn't go to the hospital with them because 1 he was in the helicopter and 2 I was still about 2 hours from home and it was about 8 o clock. When they loaded him he was in stable condition so I'm confident that he made it. It sure was a humbling experience.
