HARTS LOCATION, N.H. – A hiker having difficulty breathing was rescued from the Dry River Trail in the White Mountain National Forest Saturday.

Kristina Reams, 23, of Bridgton, Maine, began having breathing issues about 1.5 miles from the trailhead. With no cell phone service, her companion ran out to the road and flagged down a passing motorist who called for help at 6:45 p.m. Members of the Bartlett Jackson Ambulance Service, Pemi Valley Search and Rescue, and Fish and Game Conservation officers reponded and were able to stabilize her breathing, officials said.

Officials said Reams was brought down the trail by ATV and reached the trailhead about 9:50 p.m. She was taken to an area hospital for treatment.
