Tiburon man rescued after two days in Montana wilderness


A Tiburon man who went missing in backcountry Montana last week was found alive after breaking his leg and enduring two nights of nearly freezing temperatures with few supplies. George Brown, a 68-year-old Cibrian Drive resident, was rescued from the Bob Marshall Wilderness Aug. 7 after he spent several hours shuffling his way back to a trail while he had two broken bones in his lower left leg. He was airlifted to a hospital in Great Falls, Mont., where he was treated for severe dehydration, muscle breakdown and a kidney injury, along with the broken tibia and fibula.
