FORT ANN, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Forest rangers from the Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) rescued a hiker from Clifton Park on Saturday.
Just after 1 p.m. on November 28, Warren County 911 sent the DEC a call asking for help for a 57-year-old hiker from Clifton Park. The man had a possible leg fracture and was one mile from the summit of Buck Mountain.
Four rangers found the hiker, splinted his injured leg, and carried him to a waiting ATV to drive him out of the woods. Once back at the trailhead at about 5:15 p.m., the hiker declined further medical assistance.
