Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Aug. 28 at 12:15 p.m., Forest Rangers were notified by Greene County 911 about an injured hiker on the Escarpment Trail south of the Catskill Mountain House site. Forest Rangers Dawson and Nelson, along with two Assistant Forest Rangers, responded to the location. The 45-year-old hiker from Mamaroneck had suffered a laceration to his lower leg after a fall on the trail. His hiking companions provided first aid to control the bleeding. The responding Rangers provided additional medical care by bandaging the wound with a pressure bandage and stabilized the injury for extraction. With the help of the Rangers and crutches, the subject was able to hike out to the trailhead, where Ranger Dawson rebandaged the wound. All resources were clear of the scene at 5 p.m.
