Greene County in Town of Hunter

Wildland Rescue:
On Feb. 20 at 12:10 p.m., Forest Ranger Fox responded to a report of a subject on the ice approximately seven feet from the edge of Kaaterskill Falls. Environmental Conservation Police Officer (ECO) Lt. Glorioso and ECO Palmateer also responded. ECO Palmateer located the subject, anchored his throw bag to a tree, and threw a rope to the subject to prevent him from sliding over the edge. Ranger Fox set up a static line, tied an improvised seat harness to the 56-year-old from New York City, and secured him to the line. Ranger Fox then helped the subject work his way back to safety. After providing traction devices, Ranger Fox, Lt. Glorioso, ECO Palmateer, and the Greene County Sheriff's Department helped the subject back to his vehicle at the trailhead. Resources were clear at 2 p.m.
