BETHLEHEM, N.H. — A hiker who slipped on wet rocks on a New Hampshire trail and suffered a leg injury has been rescued.
The state Fish and Game Department says 25-year-old Boston resident Lisa Simon was hiking south on the Twinway Trail in Bethlehem with a companion on Friday when she fell about a quarter-mile from the remote Galehead Hut. Simon couldn’t put any weight on her injured leg.
Appalachian Mountain Club workers were called from the hut. They stabilized Simon’s injury and took her back to the hut, where there are lodgings and a store.
Fish and Game Department conservation officers, Pemi Valley Search and Rescue Team volunteers and other Appalachian Mountain Club members responded. They helped carry Simon to the beginning of the trail where she could get more treatment.
