Woman Rescued From Bruce Trail in NOTL

6/9/2012

A woman has been rescued from the Bruce Trail in Niagara-On-The-Lake.

St Catharines and NOTL firefighters were called to the Queenston Quarry last night at around 8:30 to help a woman who had injured her leg.

A special "Rescue Cart" had to be used which was recently obtained to assist in rough terrain rescues.

Senior Captain Ron Denhollander says the equipment allowed firefighters to more easily and efficiently remove the patient from the accident site and into the hands of paramedics at the scene within 20 minutes of arriving on the scene.

The woman is said to be in stable condition.
