Injured woman rescued from Mianus River Park

An incapacitated woman has been rescued from the trails of Mianus River Park after she fell and injured her leg, according local emergency medical personnel. The unidentified woman has since been transported to the Trauma Center at Stamford Hospital, where she is currently receiving treatment for her injuries, by Stamford Emergency Medical Services.

At approximately 2:00 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, Greenwich and Stamford paramedics were dispatched to the densely wooded park on the border between the two towns. SEMS ultimately reached the scene first, less than ten minutes later, and used all-terrain vehicles to access the injured woman, who was deep in the park’s trails on the Greenwich side. GEMS units were turned back. Both the Greenwich and Stamford Fire Departments responded to the situation with several units.

The woman was treated, packaged, and transported out of the park via the all-terrain vehicles, said SEMS supervisor Bill Ackley.

“Everyone did a very good job given the circumstances,” he said.

The severity of the woman’s leg injury remains unknown.
