Kaaterskill Wild Forest-Fawns Leap Rescue
: On Aug. 30, Forest Ranger Dawson was patrolling Fawn's Leap swimming area in Kaaterskill Clove when swimmers approached him for medical help. The group reported that their friend jumped off the 30-foot cliff and injured his shoulder when he landed in the water. Ranger Dawson located the 24-year-old man from Pompton Plains, NJ, below the swimming hole, out of the water. Ranger Dawson determined that the swimmer had a dislocated shoulder, and with his permission, reduced the injury and secured the subject's shoulder in a sling. The man declined additional medical attention and walked out to a friend's vehicle.
