MILAN, N.Y. -- A 55-year-old Poughkeepsie hunter with an injured leg was rescued from a densely wooded area by members of the Milan Fire Department, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

The man, whose name was not released, was hunting off of Lamoree Road about 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21, when he fell while exiting a tree stand, according to the report.

Firefighters and ambulance crews entered the woods, carrying the man several thousand feet to a utility task vehicle. He was then taken to Northern Dutchess Hospital by paramedics, the report said.
