Town of Windham in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue: On Jan. 1 at 11:20 a.m., Greene County 911 received a report of a woman with an injured elbow on the Batavia Kill Trail. The subject had been trail running on the Acra Point Loop Trails with another runner until they separated to take different trails to Big Hollow Trailhead. Near the Batavia Kill lean-to, the woman fell on the ice, which caused an unstable elbow injury. She called 911 for help and slowly continued out to the trailhead with a group of hikers who stopped to assist her. Forest Rangers Nelson and Fox responded, with Ranger Nelson locating the 29-year-old woman from Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, on the trail at 12:00 p.m. Ranger Nelson provided warming materials, stabilized the runner's arm, and assisted her to the trailhead. Windham Ambulance EMS evaluated the subject at the trailhead and she reported that she would seek additional medical treatment on her own.
