Rescue Profile: Bill and Andreas
Case #: 12629
One June afternoon, Peschka was cycling in Sweetwater County where he stumbled upon Andreas Fassbender, a German cyclist heading north to Canada. Fassbender had been catapulted off his bike after hitting a patch of deep sand with the front wheel. Fassbender had been lying on the ground waiting for 2 hours as he was unable to connect to local authorities due to lack of cellular coverage. Luckily for Fassbender, Peschka had his SPOT handy.
The SOS was pushed and within 30 minutes, Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office had arrived on the scene and was looking for SPOT Owner, Peschka by name. Two ambulances had been dispatched because they were unsure of the road conditions and wanted to get quickly to Fassbender’s aide. They loaded Fassbender into the ambulance and off they went.
