DEC rangers and EMS rescued an injured hiker in Kaaterskill Falls in Greene County this week.

The hiker was suffering from symptoms of a heart attack.

The rangers were able to use a wheeled litter to get the injured hiker quickly back to the trailhead.

You’ll recall NewsChannel 13 showed you this new tool last month at a demonstration.
