Town of Hunter/ Kaaterskill Falls in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue: On July 4 at 3 p.m., Forest Ranger John Gullen and Assistant Forest Ranger Jonathan Lasselle came across a 22-year-old man from Brooklyn who became ill not far from the middle pool of Kaaterskill Falls. The man was unable to keep any fluids down and had a fever. Rangers helped the man walk out of the woods to a waiting ambulance at the Laurel House parking lot, where he was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.

NOTE: If you do not feel well, do NOT go hiking. You will be endangering others if you have COVID-19. Over the past couple of months numerous emergency responders have become ill from helping people with COVID-19.
