Wilderness Rescue:
On Sept. 6 at 2:55 p.m., Forest Ranger Fox responded to a report that a 67-year-old woman from Westhampton Beach had slipped and fallen on the Huckleberry Point Trail in the Kaaterskill Wild Forest area. The hiker was 2.5 miles from the trailhead, accompanied by family members. Rangers Fox and Seeley, along with Assistant Forest Ranger France, responded to assist. Once on scene, Rangers provided basic first aid for a scrape and bruise on the subject's face and stabilized her injured left shoulder in a sling. Rangers then assisted the woman out of the woods. Once back at the trailhead, the hiker declined additional medical care stating she would seek treatment on her own. All resources were clear of the scene at 8:14 p.m.
