Hiker Exhausted on Plateau Mountain

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On May 13 at 4:50 p.m., Forest Rangers Allwine and Rusher responded to a report of an injured hiker on Plateau Mountain. Ranger Allwine reached the Notch Lake trailhead along with Twin Clove Rescue and spoke to the patient's hiking companions. They indicated two members of the group had stayed with the 64-year-old from Albany. When Ranger Rusher reached the hiker at 7:30 p.m., the subject was complaining of nausea, lethargy, sleepiness, and cramping. Ranger Rusher provided the hiker with electrolytes and fluids. After eating and resting, the hiker began walking out with the help of rescue crews. The group reached the trailhead by 10:30 p.m., where EMS crews determined no further medical care was needed. Centerville Cedar Grove Fire, Kingston Fire, Lanesville Fire, Palenville Fire, Hunter Police, Hunter Ambulance, and Greene County EMS all assisted in the rescue efforts.
