Hiker injured by Kaaterskill Falls

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Jan. 10 at 2:30 p.m., Central Dispatch received a call for help for a 67-year-old man who slipped on the ice at Kaaterskill Falls. Forest Rangers Allwine and Dawson responded and found the hiker from Massachusetts with a knee injury unable to walk. Rangers provided medical care and packaged the subject in a Sked to carry him up the ice-covered trail to a Ranger truck before driving the injured subject up to the Laurel House trailhead. The hiker declined further medical care. Resources were clear at 4:36 p.m.

Please Note: Hikers should use microspikes or crampons when walking on icy trails.
