Hiker Injured at Kaaterskill Falls

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Green County

Wilderness Rescue:
On May 8 at approximately 3 p.m., Forest Ranger Dawson was approached by hikers at Kaaterskill Falls who reported an injured hiker near the viewing platform. Ranger Dawson found the 69-year-old from Flushing and provided medical care for her ankle injury. The patient used crutches to move up the trail, but became exhausted and couldn't continue. Ranger Dawson borrowed a wheelie walker from another group and wheeled the patient 200 feet to his Ranger truck. Ranger Dawson drove the subject to the Laurel House trailhead where she declined any further care.
