A member of a New Mexico rescue team received a shock when he discovered the climber’s form he was sent to recover belonged to his ex-wife.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Scott Hicks was volunteering with the Santa Fe County Fire Department technical save squad Monday afternoon when they were sent to retrieve their own bodies of a 59 -year-old female. The female had been climbing in Diablo Canyon and had descended 175 hoofs to her death.
Upon arriving at the canyon, Hicks discovered the dead climber was Susan Sarossy. He was married to Sarossy for 19 times before they distinguished. They have a 25 -year-old daughter together, and Sarossy has a 41 -year-old son from a previous marriage.
Hicks says Sarossy took up clambering to face her panic of heights.
