Town of Lexington in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Aug. 14 at 11:26 a.m., Forest Ranger Allwine received a call from the Frost Valley YMCA Director about a camper who fell 10 feet off a rock face at the John Robb lean-to. One member of the group was a wilderness first responder. Rangers Allwine, Fox, Peterson, and Assistant Forest Ranger Zeleznik reached the 11-year-old from Brooklyn at 1:30 p.m. The patient had a back injury and complained of pain while speaking. Rangers stabilized the camper in a vacuum mattress and litter, carried her out to the Rangers' vehicle, and drove her to the trailhead. Ashland Ambulance, Greene County Paramedics, and Lexington Rescue also responded. At 5:16 p.m., Ashland Ambulance transported the patient to the hospital.
