Lost hiker rescued from Tarrywile Park

A lost hiker has been rescued from Tarrywile Park in Danbury.  A resident went for a hike yesterday afternoon and his dog took off.  The man was able to locate Dakota, but lost his way in the process.  The man called 911 around 8pm and the Fire Department set out to his location, determined via GPS signal.  He was located just as his cell phone ran out of battery.  No injuries were reported.  The man and his dog were given water and returned to their car.  The Fire Department is reminding park visitors to carry  a flashlight, have a fully charged cell phone, and carry a battery pack to recharge the phone if possible.  Understand mapping Apps and letting someone know the hiking plan is also suggested.
