2 lost, 1 injured hiker helped on Mount Kearsarge

WILMOT, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say two participants in Colby Sawyer College’s annual “Mountain Day” got lost and a third was injured on Mount Kearsarge.

Fish and Game officers were called about an injured hiker Friday afternoon. As they were on their way, they got another call about two lost hikers.

Working with local agencies, the Fish and Game officials carried the injured hiker, an 18-year-old woman from Lynn, Massachusetts, down the mountain. Officials say she was hurt after leaving the trail to get around some ice.

The lost hikers also made it to safety. Officials say all three were part of an annual day of hiking organized by Colby Sawyer College. Officials say the incidents are a reminder to be prepared for winter-like conditions.
