A young woman hiking down the Pinnacle Trail hyper-extended her right knee and heard an audible "pop". She attempted to walk out with assistance from her hiking partner, but was unable to do so.

Stowe Mountain Rescue hiked in and found the patient and performed a physical exam.  She was packaged in a splint and evacuated by litter without incident.  She was transferred to Stowe Rescue for transport to Copley Hospital.
