Boy, uncle carried off NH mountain
ALTON, N.H.—Rescue workers had to carry a boy and his uncle off a New Hampshire mountain after they fell down a rock face.
Ronald Arsenault of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department said 12-year-old Andrew Sosidka of Brick, N.J., may have suffered a broken ankle and 46-year-old Dave Sosidka of Clinton, N.J., may have broken ribs after their falls while hiking Friday on Mount Major in Alton.
Arsenault said the boy tumbled while running on the rock face at about 4 p.m. He said the boy fell about 30 feet, but only the first six or seven feet were straight down. His uncle fell while trying to help him.
Arsenault said about 30 firefighters from area towns helped get the two down the mountain by about 8 p.m.
Both were treated at a Wolfeboro Hospital.
