Hiker injured near Newman's Ledge

Unread post by dave »

Town of Hunter in Greene County

Wilderness Rescue:
On Oct. 3 at 3:30 p.m., Greene County requested Forest Ranger assistance with a hiker who had suffered ankle and shoulder injuries near Newman's Ledge on the Escarpment Trail. The 34-year-old from Brooklyn was with a hiking partner and two dogs. The hiking partner took the dogs to look for help. The subject realized she had cell service and called 911. Ranger Dawson hiked approximately 1.5 miles to the subject, provided first aid, and coordinated the evacuation. Rangers Fox and Peterson hiked in with a wheeled litter and rope gear and Rangers Bowler and Jackson arrived to assist with the carry-out. The rope gear was needed in four areas of steep terrain. Rangers completed the carry-out at 10:15 p.m. The hiker's partner took her to the hospital.
