Unread post by dave »

Town of Kingston in Ulster County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Jan. 11 at 4:45 p.m., Forest Rangers Franceschina and Horn responded to Bluestone Wild Forest for a report of a mountain biker with an upper leg injury. When Rangers arrived, Ruby Fire, Sawkill Volunteer Fire, and paramedics were already at the scene. The 68-year-old from Kingston had suffered a broken femur after falling from his bike approximately one mile from the Jockey Hill Wintergreen trailhead. Rescue crews transported the patient via fire department ATV back to the trailhead. He was then taken to Kingston Hospital. Resources were clear at 6:30 p.m.
