Hiker injured at Kaaterskill Falls

New postby dave » Wed Sep 06, 2017 1:36 pm

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Rescue: On August 29, two men were hiking into the Kaaterskill Falls middle pool when one sustained a knee injury and could no longer walk. Four DEC Forest Rangers and rescue personnel from Haines Falls, Tannersville, Pallenville, and Hunter initiated the rescue of the 75-year-old Ancram man. Rangers stabilized the subject in a litter and carried him to the highway over the narrow and steep trail. Once at the highway, the man refused any further treatment and was released to his own care.
