Response to September 2004 Accidents/Rescues

 

A 76-year-old man fell on Mount Watatic injuring his shoulder and he was LifeFlighted to UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester.
Ashburnham and Ashby police and fire departments responded to the call of an injured hiker on the mountain, which is on the border of the two towns and near the New Hampshire border. The LifeFlight helicopter was called because the hiker's blood pressure was very low, according to Ashburnham fire Battalion Chief Robert Salo.
"We want to get him to an appropriate facility in a short amount of time," said Salo.
