Wildland Rescue: On June 10 at approximately 12:30 p.m., while patrolling Kaaterskill Falls, Assistant Forest Ranger Aaron France encountered a 15-year-old female from Kingston with an ankle injury at the base of the stone stairs. The subject had been hiking with her family and reportedly rolled her ankle on a loose rock after stepping off the trail toward the lower pool, feeling a popping sensation at the time of the injury. While Assistant Forest Rangers France and Leslie Green provided initial patient care, Rangers Katherine Fox and Christine Nelson responded. Rangers applied a splint to stabilize the patient's left ankle. She was then assisted to the trailhead and was out of the woods at 2:30 p.m. The patient's father refused ambulance transport, electing instead to transport the subject for further medical care.
