Suicidal couple rescued in canyon
GLENWOOD CANYON, Colorado – Garfield County Sheriff’s deputies apparently had a hand in keeping an unidentified man and his wife from committing suicide in an area near Bair Ranch on Tuesday.
Bair Ranch is a historic sheep ranch, guest ranch and tourist destination, located about 12 miles east of Glenwood Springs along the Colorado River, at the east end of Glenwood Canyon.
According to sheriff’s office spokeswoman Jennifer Kelly, two county squad cars responded to a call about the suicidal couple at 2:48 p.m. on Tuesday, and went out in search of the couple’s vehicle.
The vehicle was located near Bair Ranch.
By 4:07 p.m., Kelly said, the pair had walked out of the woods and into the custody of the deputies.
Kelly said the department had not released the names of the two individuals involved, because it was a mental health matter.
