Man suffers multiple leg fractures in goose attack

By Associated Press, 5/15/2002 04:15

HARDING TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) A hiker trying to escape from an angry goose fell and suffered multiple leg fractures, then had to wait two hours until rescuers could locate him.

The victim, a 40-year-old Florham Park man, was attacked around 8 a.m. Saturday in the Harding Township section of the Great Swamp, a nature site in Morris County. The goose has not been captured as of early Wednesday, and it was not known what prompted the attack.

After he fell, the man was unable to move and used his cell phone to call for help. Authorities and emergency services personnel from five towns began searching for the victim, who was found around 10 a.m. by Long Hill Police Officer Gary Bauer.

Authorities said the man was taken to Morristown Memorial Hospital, where he was being treated for his injuries.
