On Friday, around 4:15 p.m., forest rangers heard radio reports about a teenager possibly having a seizure at Peekamoose Blue Hole. When rangers arrived, they found the teen conscious and alert, but with blue lips, hands, and feet, according to the DEC.
The DEC says she hit her head on a rock and passed out, as she was lethargic, lightheaded, and shivering due to dehydration and hypothermia. She was given water, dry clothes, and snacks.
