Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Sept. 4 at 11 a.m., Greene County 911 contacted Ranger Fox regarding a report of an individual who fell from the top of Kaaterskill Falls. Rangers Fox, Seeley, and Skudlarek responded, along with Assistant Forest Ranger (AFR) Gumbs. AFR Gumbs located the 22-year-old from New Jersey with an unstable right ankle injury. The subject was at the top of Kaaterskill Falls in the creek, approximately 12 feet from the edge. After moving the subject to a safer spot, Rangers, Hunter Police, and Hunter Ambulance personnel administered first aid and carried him to the trail. Centerville/Cedar Grove Fire transported the subject to the ambulance with their UTV. The subject was then transported to Kingston Hospital via ambulance. Resources were clear at 2 p.m.
