An injured hiker has been rescued from Upper Paugussett State Park in Newtown. The 55 year old was part of a group of five on one of the blue trails early Saturday morning when he fell and dislocated his hip. The group started the hike from the state boat launch at Hanover and Pond Brook roads. Firefighters, paramedics and Newtown Underwater Search And Rescue responded shortly before 7am. A private boat on the lake located the group, picked up the injured hiker and transported him to the town boat launch. The man was transported to the hospital. First responders told the Newtown Bee that the hikers wanted a view from the Newtown side of Lake Lillinonah of eagles at the Shepaug Eagle Viewing area in Southbury.
