State forest rangers and state police had to use a helicopter to save a woman from Black Mountain above Lake George.

The 46-year-old woman from South Glens Falls hurt her knee, and she couldn't even put weight on it.

The DEC says they got the call for help around 12:30 p.m. Saturday. 

At dusk, they did a power-on landing at the summit of the mountain in Washington County.

The hiker was taken to the hospital for medical treatment after that.
