A hiker died from a heart attack at Harriman State Park Sunday afternoon, according to the New York State Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation Office.

State Park Police and local emergency personnel responded to a cardiac arrest involving a 40-year-old man along the Blue Trail near Pine Meadow Lake in Harriman State Park, said Randy Simons, public information officer.

The unidentified man was located about a half-mile in the woods behind the Reeves Meadow Visitor Center.

Upon arrival emergency responders immediately began CPR measures, but sadly the man did not survive, he said.

The man's body was handed over to the Rockland County medical examiner’s office to determine a cause of death, Simon added.

In addition to the hiker, one first responder also had to be taken to a local hospital after feeling ill. There is no word on his status.

Simon said an investigation is ongoing into the hiker's death.

The second largest state park in New York, Harriman Park is located in both Rockland and Orange counties.
