Y April 30, 2015 I The Lovell Chronicle I 5 DAVID PECK North Big Horn Hospital EMTs Scott Murphey (North Big Horn Hospital paramedic and ambulance director) and Sarah Wilkerson (LPN) check out Adriana DelaCruz after firemen freed her from the swing in which she became stuck last Tuesday afternoon, April 21, at Constitution Park in Lovell. Looking on are her father, Adrian, and Lovell Fire Dept. Capt. Bob Mangus. BY DAVID PECK A Lovell Elementary School student is thank- ful for the Lovell Volunteer Fire Dept.'s "Jaws of Life" device after she was freed from a swing at Constitu- tion Park in which she had become stuck last Tuesday afternoon, April 21. Lovell Fire Chief Jim Minchow said fourth-grade student Adriana DelaCruz was on a school outing to the park when she climbed into a toddler seat on the swing set and became stuck. The tightness of the seat may have been exacerbat- ed by some swelling in her legs, Minchow said, and she became pinned in the seat, causing her pain. Firemen and the am- bulance crew were called around 3 p.m Minchow said, and once at the scene, they acted quickly to first relieve the girl's pain, then free her from the seat, which was made of metal covered by plastic, necessi- tating the use of the cutting tool on the department's Jaws of Life. "First, we cut the chains to lower her down so it wasn't hurting her so bad," Minchow said. "We lowered her and laid her on a stretch- er so the pressure wasn't on her legs and pinching her. Then we cut four to six inch- es out of the seat with the Jaws of Life cutter, got one leg out and then we could bend it around to the right angle and pull it off of her." EMTs from the North Big Horn Hospital ambu- lance crew checked Adriana out at the scene and she walked home with her fa- ther, Adrian. BY DAVID PECK A one-vehicle rollover just south of Lovell early Fziday morning claimed the life of a Basin man, accord- ing to the Wyoming High- way Patrol. Louis Lloyd Muckley, 39, died at the scene of the crash, which happened around 2:40 a.m. at mile post 232 about four miles south of Lovell on U.S. Highway 310 just south of Lovell Lake, according to Trooper Blain Mollett. Muckley was the sole occupant of a 1996 Dodge 2500 three-quarter-ton pickup that was traveling south from Lovell toward Basin. Mollett said Muckley had finished his shift at the Georgia-Pacific wallboard plant around 11 p.m. and apparently went to Lovell. He left a bar in Lovell at around 2:25 a.m Mollett estimated, and started driv- ing south. When Muckley did not return home, his wife called in a missing person's report shortly after 5:30 a.m. The Big Horn County Sheriffs Dept. was notified to begin a search and a deputy began a search within minutes. Deputy Jeff Angell found the crash site just before 6 a.m. and began the process of requesting emergency re- sponders. The Highway Pa- trol was called to the scene and Mollett said he was no- tiffed at 6:23 a.m. Sheriff Ken Blackburn said Deputy Angell de- serves kudos for using his intuition, based on years of experience, to find the crash site, which was difficult to locate in the early morning hours, then used his care and compassion dealing with the victim's loved ones. "He went above and be- yond the call of duty to pro- vide support for the fami- ly, even driving all the way to Basin to meet personally with them," Blackburn said. "People often take it for granted how hard these sit- uations can be on emergen- cy responders, too." Mollett said the Muck- ley pickup was driving south on 310 when it left the roadway to the right side where the highway makes a slight curve to the left and the driver overcorrected, sending the truck across the road, leaving the highway on the left side as it spun 180 degrees, then rolled down a steep embankment. Muckley was ejected and was not wearing a seatbelt, Mollett said. He was later pro- nounced dead at the scene. Mollett said alcohol is being investigated as a fac- tor in the crash, though he said results from blood work would not be available for a week or two. Louis Muckley was an employee of the ATS main- tenance company working at G-P. Memorial services will be held Wednesday, May 6, at Haskell Funeral Home in Lovell.
