CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officials say a hiker and snowmobiler were rescued after separate requests for assistance came in at about the same time.

Officials say crews were called to the Avalon Trail in Crawford North at about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday after receiving a report a skier had passed out.

Personnel from Twin Mountain Fire and Rescue hiked about a third of a mile into the woods and transported the skier, 59-year-old Steven Leavitt, of Intervale, out of the woods. He was taken to a Littleton hospital for treatment of a medical condition.

Meanwhile, a second call came in at about the same time for a snowmobile crash along the Base Road at Bretton Woods. The 58-year-old snowmobiler, Yin Wong, of Boston, suffered an arm injury.
