Town of Tannersville in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Oct. 22 at 9:20 p.m., Greene County 911 contacted DEC's Central Office Dispatch advising that New York State Police and the Town of Hunter Police Department were requesting Forest Ranger assistance to locate a hiker who screamed for help at the Roaring Kill Trail. Forest Ranger Nelson responded to assist, and at 1 a.m., located the 41-year-old hiker from Plainview. The hiker sustained a twisted left knee, which the Ranger wrapped, so the hiker could walk out of the woods. Ranger Nelson also provided food, Gatorade, and a flashlight. The hiker advised that he lost track of time, and due to darkness, had a difficult time finding his way out of the woods. At 1:15 a.m., the subject was escorted back to his vehicle where he declined further medical attention.
