Hiker carried off Mount Major after injuring her ankle
ALTON – Rescuers brought an injured hiker down off Mount Major late Saturday after the woman broke her ankle.
Firefighters told the Union Leader they got a call about an injured hiker on the mountain around 5:20 p.m. and gathered a crew that included firefighters from Gilford and Gilmanton to hike the 1.5 mile trail to the summit.
The crews then carried her down the trail. She was taken to Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia.
The rescue operation took a little more than an hour, firefighters said.
