Northwoods man builds emergency trailer to help accident victims in remote areas

MERCER - Ambulances in the Northwoods sometimes have trouble accessing remote areas deep in the forest. As a result, EMTs can't always immediately help people who are hurt.

In an effort to solve that problem, one Northwoods man built a custom off-road recovery and rescue unit.

"The principle behind this is that anybody can haul it with any SUV, truck, car to the trail head," says inventor Karl Brunell. "They hook up with the ranger or any big UTV."
