Mar. 21—Rescuers helped a Maryland woman down the Wildcat Ridge Trail at Pinkham's Grant after she slipped and injured her lower leg.
Fish and Game conservation officers and volunteers from Androscoggin Valley Search & Rescue responded around 4:30 p.m. Saturday approximately a mile up the trail. Parker Gray, 25, of Finksburg, was unable to bear any weight on her leg.
Gray, with assistance from her family, slid down a portion of the steep trail until rescuers arrived, according to a news release.
Rescue personnel used a SKED litter to bring Gray down the trail to the junction of Route 16. She was taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin by a Gorham ambulance.
Gray was wearing appropriate hiking boots and microspikes, according to Fish and Game officials.
