Local Girl Rescued from Bare Mountain


AMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) — Amherst Fire sent out a rescue crew earlier today after a 15 year-old girl injured her leg while hiking.

The teen was with her father and brother around noon Saturday, walking the trails near Bare Mountain.

The area has a lot of loose shale and the girl lost her footing and severely sprained her ankle to the point where she was unable to walk.

Amherst Fire crews were able to bring her safely down using a rescue sled and a system of ropes.

She was treated at the scene and is expected to make a full recovery.
