Lexington police officer, firefighters, and EMS rescues elderly woman from ravine off Augusta Road


Lexington, SC (Paul Kirby) – Lexington police officers called on the fire service and EMS to assist them after they located a woman that was missing from an assisted living facility in Lexington. The 79-year-old went missing Monday.

The elderly woman was found shortly after noon by officers in a wooded area close to the Lexington County main library. This is near the intersection of Augusta Road and Cedarcrest Drive just east of downtown.

According to Corporal Cameron Mortenson of the Lexington Police Department, the woman had wandered away from the assisted living unit and somehow entered into the woods where she apparently became disoriented. When officers located her, she had slipped down in a ravine in the heavily wooded area. The police asked for the firefighters and EMTs to assist in bringing her out of that rough terrain on a backboard.

The woman didn’t appear to have any life-threatening injuries. The crew from Lexington EMS transported her to a local medical center for evaluation as a precautionary measure.
