TYRONE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- If you're hurt or injured in the wilderness, every second can count. Penn State Hershey Medical Center staged an exercise Wednesday to train resident physicians how to handle a range of illness and injury scenarios out in the wild. The residents were divided into five groups, each assigned to a different injury scenario. Among the possible scenarios: a bear mauling, a lightning strike, an allergic reaction to insect stings, a suspension injury, and a gunshot injury.
