Ranger Report Sept 25 2019

INDIAN LAKE--On Sept. 21 at 3:10 p.m., DEC’s Ray Brook Dispatch received a call from Hamilton County 911 advising that they received a broken phone call from a group on Blue Mountain. The caller stated that the group had come across a woman who had fallen and injured her head and that they were currently assisting her down the mountain.
Forest Rangers Jason Scott and James Waters responded to the trailhead, where they were met by the Blue Mountain Lake Fire Department and Indian Lake EMS. On the trail, Forest Ranger Waters came across the group and assisted them the rest of the way to the parking lot. The 71-year-old woman from Blue Mountain Lake was transported to a local hospital by Indian Lake EMS.

INLET--On Sept. 22 at 6 p.m., Hamilton County 911 contacted DEC's Ray Brook Dispatch regarding a 14-year-old girl from Syracuse who was separated from her hiking party on Black Bear Mountain. Forest Rangers Jenifer Temple and Jason Scott responded to assist.
Because cell phone coordinates were not immediately available, searchers began with nearby trails while the hiking party was interviewed. The hiker's unique walking stick was located by her family members on Uncas Road. State Police in Albany were able to produce phone coordinates for the missing hiker at 7:51 p.m.. The coordinates were then relayed to DEC’s Ray Brook Dispatch. The hiker was located by Forest Ranger Scott at 8:15 p.m. at the 8th Lake lean-to and she was brought back to the trailhead. The teen had taken a wrong turn on the trail on a lower elevation loop and eventually ended up at the lean-to.
