Fall injures Tahoe City hiker

North Tahoe Fire Protection District responded to a call before 10 a.m. Saturday when a 65-year old woman fell from a dam in the forest behind the Highlands neighborhood in Tahoe City.

The woman fell about 12 feet after she was knocked over by another hiker’s dog, said Nancy Fidler of Tahoe City.

Another passerby had a cell phone and called for help. The woman was placed on a backboard and loaded onto a fire district truck.

Paramedics brought her to an ambulance waiting on the paved road and she was transported to Tahoe Forest Hospital.
