Massachusetts man injured on N.H.'s Mount Washington

The Associated Press

PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. — A Massachusetts man is undergoing treatment after being seriously injured in a 200-foot fall while hiking at New Hampshire's Mount Washington.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 25-year-old Russell Kincade of Pembroke, Mass., was hiking in the Huntington Ravine central gulley with another hiker he'd met on the trail when he slipped and fell down a rock slope Saturday afternoon, suffering what appeared to be serious head injuries.

Kincade was initially tended to by Mount Washington State Park personnel and then carried by Fish and Game conservation officers and others over 2½ miles of rugged terrain, reaching the Appalachian Mountain Club Pinkham Notch visitors center at 3 a.m. Sunday.

Kincade was transported by medical helicopter to the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, where he's being treated.
