On June 25 at 2 p.m., Central Dispatch was contacted by Greene County 911 concerning an injured hiker on West Kill Mountain in Hunter-West Kill Wilderness Area. The hiker was reported to have a lower leg injury. Five Forest Rangers responded along with members of the Lexington and Jewett fire departments. A New York State Police helicopter out of Newburgh was used to conduct a hoist operation. The subject was then transferred to a waiting ambulance and transported to an area hospital.

Westkill Mountain is near Leavitt Mtn and Hunter Mountain in the town of Lexington.
