SMR was summoned to assist Cambridge Fire/Rescue with a litter evacuation off the Long Trail.  A 47-year old female subject had fallen a number of times during her descent on the steep trail between Taft Lodge and Route 108/Mountain Road injuring her hip and rendering her unable to complete the hike.  Rescuers reached the subject (and hiking partner) after a 30-minute hike up from the trail head.

Patient was packaged in a litter/wheel and evacuated without incident to an awaiting ambulance for transport to a local hospital for further evaluation.
