Hiker experiencing medical issue rescued from Richter Park

A hiker was recused from the woods of Richter Park in Danbury on Saturday.  Fire officials say the weather was great and many people took advantage to get outdoors.  Firefighters were alerted around 1pm at that a hiker was having difficulty in the woods on the red trail.  They and a paramedic used the off road rescue vehicle known as "Ranger 1" until the trail narrowed, and then headed out on foot.  The hiker was located near the summit of the Farrington property. After having a temporary medical issue, the Paramedic made sure the hiker was feeling better, and they were escorted out of the woods. Once back at the command post and feeling better, the hiker was released without needing further medical attention.
