Finding Theo with Timothy Krause
Event sponsored by Tyra Rudrud
A mountain rescue that stopped Vail Mountain. Hear from Theo and his father Timothy about the unimaginable day on the hill and the mountain rescue that brought Theo home.
Twenty-five-year-old Theo Krause is in peak physical condition when a violent collision with a lone aspen tree while mountian biking splinters his neck. Now, lying face up and staring at the sky, unable to move his arms or legs, he thinks, “This is where I will die.”
A father's raw account of his son's courageous battle for life, FINDING THEO is also a deeper story of discovery: the map maker son of an Iranian immigrant who found him beside the trail, four Swiss-German tourists who cared for him while waiting for the wilderness rescue team, the team of medical professionals––one, the sister of a Columbine High School massacre victim––and the cast of family and friends who guarded his soul.
