Hiker Rescued in Nyack

An injured man was rescued from Hook Mountain in Upper Nyack on Monday afternoon, after he fell while hiking. Police stated the man, reported to be a 35-year old from Long Island, was climbing along the upper plateau of the mountain above the trail, when around 12:30 PM he fell down a steep embankment, landing in a tree on a ledge over 140 feet above the Hudson River bank. Nyack fire officials stated that crews were able to find the man by using GPS coordinates after speaking with him on his cellphone, and reached him around 4 PM. He had been clinging to the tree for more than three hours by the time emergency workers were able to use a basket and rope to carry him to down the rest of the mountain and transported him to Nyack Hospital where he was treated him for hip and leg injuries. Nyack Fire Chief Vincent Reid stated that the responding crews did a great job using their training to retrieve the man from his precarious situation.
