Town of Windham in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue: On July 21, Greene County 911 was notified that a 32-year-old Earlton woman hit her head on the beam inside the Elm Ridge Lean-to and was semi-conscious. Local first responders and three Forest Rangers responded to the lean-to and conducted a rescue carry to a Med-Flight helicopter that then transported her to an Albany hospital.

As of today, she remains at Albany Medical Center. We don't know if she has sustained any brain injury. But, we wish her a full recovery, and hope to see her out in the forest again.
