Response to April 2004 Accidents/Rescues

 

Two hikers were rescued early yesterday morning after they became lost while walking near the Appalachian Trail.
Great Barrington Police received a phone call at 12:04 a.m. concerning a hiker with a possible case of hypothermia.
After it was determined where the call came from, fire and rescue squads from Sheffield and Egremont responded to the scene, Great Barrington police said.
One of the hikers was located in the vicinity of Gilder Pond, which is near the Appalachian Trail. It was unclear yesterday where the other hiker was found.
One of the hikers was transported to Fairview Hospital in Great Barrington for treatment. Both his name and condition were unavailable yesterday.
