Unread post by dave »

Hamlet of Lanesville in Greene County

Wilderness Recovery:
On Sept. 16 at 8:50 a.m., a hiker complaining of chest discomfort and breathing issues collapsed on the Diamond Notch Trail in the Hunter-West Kill Wilderness. Members of the subject's hiking party began CPR while another hiker called 911. Two nearby EMTs began assisting with CPR on the 50-year-old from New Jersey. The CPR was unsuccessful. Forest Rangers Allwine and Seeley assisted other first responders with carrying the subject to the trailhead where he was turned over to the coroner. New York State Police is the lead agency on the death investigation. Resources were clear at 1 p.m.
