On Saturday, September 29, 2018, a female hiker fell on the upper falls and lacerated her leg. Some reports state that she was on the upper trail that goes around the inside of the falls. Twin Clove Rope Rescue Team was called in by EMS to assist in removing her from the location.

This is preliminary information from a couple hours ago. More information to follow in the coming days.

Update Oct 1: At 11:53 a.m., DEC's Central Dispatch received a call from Greene County 911 reporting an injured 68-year-old man from Freeport that had fallen approximately 20 feet near the lower falls at Kaaterskill Falls. Four Rangers and two assistant Rangers responded, along with members of Hunter Ambulance, Greene County Paramedic, Haines Falls Rescue, and Twin Cloves Rescue. After an assessment, the subject was able to walk out to the trailhead with assistance. At the trailhead, the man declined further medical treatment and sought further treatment on his own. Responders were clear of the incident at 1:45 p.m.
