Prescott Fire crews were called to rescue a woman in her 60s Sunday at Watson Lake. The woman’s hiking partner and several Good Samaritans assisted in calling for medical help and lead fire crews onto the proper trail. A crew hiked to the patient and determined that she was located near a section of shoreline where a boat could be utilized. The woman suffered an ankle injury when she slipped on some loose footing. The patient’s injury was stabilized and two crews carried her to the awaiting boat. She was taken to the north boat ramp and transferred to a Lifeline ambulance for transport to the hospital.
