Hikers falls off Kaaterskill Rail Trail

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On July 3 at 11:40 a.m., Forest Ranger Gullen responded to a 61-year-old from Long Island who fell down an embankment off the Kaaterskill Rail Trail. The subject fell 30 feet. They had no memory of the fall, severe rib pain, and a broken wrist. Ranger Gullen was joined by Rangers Allwine, Dawson, and Martin to set up a steep-angle raise using a SKED and vacuum mattress. Once the subject was successfully raised back to the trail, Rangers loaded the hiker into a Ranger truck and then to a waiting ambulance. Resources were clear at 3:30 p.m.
