Blowing Rock Fire/Rescue spent a busy Sunday afternoon with two involved calls at once.  Rescuers were called to the Boone Fork area, accessing it through Price Park as Rescuers spent several hours carrying out an injured hiker. (photos courtesy Blowing Rock Fire/Rescue)

The woman was carried from the Hebron Falls area off Old Turnpike Road on Sunday after the 4pm call involving the woman losing consciousness and falling. Blowing Rock Rescue, 7 Watauga Rescue personnel, Watauga Medics, Foscoe Volunteer Fire Department, and Parkway Police responded to the call and worked together on the rescue effort. The hiker was taken by ambulance to Watauga Medical Center. Blowing Rock Fire/Rescue responded to a call involving a woman injured in a fall from a horse, falling onto her head then possibly struck in the head by another horse.  The woman in her 40’s  was airlifted to Johnson City Medical Center from a landing zone just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Moses Cone Memorial Park. Rescuers said the woman was airlifted by Wings Air Transport  but was conscious by the time the helicopter lifted off.
