May 23, 2014

BUTTE (AP) — Four skiers have been rescued after several were caught in an avalanche near Butte in western Montana.

A helicopter from Malmstrom Air Force Base lifted the skiers out early Monday morning after ground rescuers couldn't reach them.

One skier was taken to a hospital and treated for a diabetic emergency. However, no one remained in the hospital by noon Monday.

Rescue officials told The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/1nNqcIz ) that the skiers were in a restricted area and caused the avalanche. The skiers said they believed the area was not off limits.
