BOSTON (CBS) — A woman hiking at Acadia National Park in Maine was rescued from Dorr Mountain after she was injured Monday. Maine Forest Rangers used a “helicopter short-haul rescue” to help the woman off the mountain while a Bar Harbor ambulance waited nearby.
The call to rescue the hiker, a 53-year-old Boston woman, who had injured her leg came in around 7 a.m.
She had been hiking up the Ladder Trail with a few other people when a falling rock landed on her leg. The rock was likely between 200-300 pounds, according to the Bangor Daily News.
Rescue crews reached her within a half-hour then decided to call in a helicopter after surveying her injury and the steep terrain that surrounded the group.
No word yet on the woman’s condition.
