CRAWFORD’S PURCHASE, N.H. – New Hampshire officials say a 69-year-old Maine man has died after apparently suffering some sort of medical condition while hiking.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says Dr. Robert Fernandez of Kennebunkport was hiking alone on the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail in Crawford’s Purchase at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday when two other hikers came upon him.
Authorities say the two other hikers noticed Fernandez appeared to be tired and accompanied him down the trail, but that he suddenly collapsed about half a mile from the parking lot.
He was unable to be revived.
