On Aug. 24 at 3:50 p.m., Forest Rangers received a call from DEC's North South Lake Campground regarding a hiker suffering from possible heat exhaustion on the Escarpment Trail in the Windham-Blackhead Wilderness Area. Forest Rangers Dawson and Fox responded to assist, hiking 2.8 miles to the subject's location. After Rangers provided the 26-year-old man from Forest Hills with food and water, he was able to slowly hike back out to the Schutt Road parking area to his vehicle. The incident concluded at 9 p.m.
