Another Serious Accident at Kaaterskill Falls

Kaaterskill Falls

There has been another serious accident at Kaaterskill Falls in Greene County.

Authorities say a young man was injured last week when he walked away from a group of hikers.

He left the trail, and went down a steep slope, falling about 40 feet, suffering injuries to his upper left leg and left arm.

He was taken to Columbia Memorial Hospital. 

In the last four years, four hikers have died, and several more have been injured at the popular waterfall. 

The state spent $800,000 last year on safety improvements.
