ESSEX COUNTY – An injured Scotia hiker was helped from an Essex County mountain Sunday, state Department of Environmental Conservation officials said.

The rescue began Sunday morning at about 9:30 a.m. as forest rangers responded to a call for an injured hiker on Big Slide Mountain, officials said.

One of the ranger then located the woman almost two hours later, at about 11:25 a.m. They splinted the hiker’s injured shoulder and helped her to the trailhead, officials said.
