Wilderness Rescue: On August 25, DEC Forest Rangers responded to an injured hiker with a knee injury on Sugarloaf Mountain. He was hiking part of the Devi's Path on the Indianhead Mountain Range. Seven DEC Rangers responded along with Tannersville Fire, Rescue and Paramedics. Due to the rugged terrain and nature of injury, the 37-year-old Binghamton man needed to be evacuated by helicopter. Within five hours, Rangers had the injured hiker hoisted into a State Police helicopter, transferred to Hunter Ambulance, and transported to Columbia Memorial Hospital.
