Woman well enough to hike PDF Print

The mood improved on Grandfather Mountain today after rescue workers finally reached a hiker in need this afternoon on Underwood Trail.

The initial report described a fallen hiker, prompting quick action by rescue personnel. Due to the terrain, it did take time for rescue personnel to reach the victim, but when they did, it was all good news. Grandfather Mountain’s Crae Morton received a report just before 3 p.m. that the unidentified woman has been treated on scene and is able to hike with assistance. A doctor was with her during the incident, Morton says, although it is unclear if the doctor arrived on the scene or was part of the initial hiking group. While her medical condition is still being assessed, Morton says she’s expected to recover. Accidents occasionally happen on the trails at Grandfather, Morton says, and rescue workers have swift protocol to follow. That protocol was followed, with positive results.
