Rangers rescued a hiker who was seemingly dehydrated in the Catskills on Monday.
According to officials with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, on February 28 at 9 a.m., four forest rangers responded to a call for an injured hiker who had temporarily lost consciousness while camping with a group near Pecoy Notch.
Two of the rangers made contact with the group at 12:20 p.m. The 23-year-old from Massachusetts advised he was feeling dizzy and nauseated.
His hiking companions had food, but no water, and their stove was inoperable.
Rangers provided the group with food and water and helped them back to the trailhead by around 2:45 p.m.
