Town of Jewett in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Sept. 19 at 2:45 p.m., the Windham Police Department contacted DEC's Central Dispatch requesting Forest Ranger assistance in locating a 40-year-old hiker from Tenafly, New Jersey, with a lower left leg injury. The hiker was approximately one mile from the Barnum Road trailhead on Thomas Cole Mountain. Forest Rangers Breigle, Seeley, Jackson, and Ellis responded to assist. After reaching the hiker, Greene County EMS provided first aid while Rangers prepared the man for a carry-out by securing him in a litter. At 6:45 p.m., Rangers carried the subject out about one mile. The man declined medical transport and said he would seek additional medical care on his own.
