Hikers likely to be billed for New Hampshire rescue


CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say they likely will bill four Massachusetts hikers for the cost of their rescue.

Fish and Game officials say the four women had planned on hiking a nine-mile loop on Mount Lafayette on Sunday when one woman fell on some ice and hurt her arm. Realizing they weren't going to make it back by nightfall, they called for help just before 4 p.m. with about four miles to go.

Officials say the group admitted they were unprepared for the early winter-like conditions and had only a small flashlight and cellphone light. A rescue crew with extra clothing, lights and other supplies reached them around 6:40 p.m., and the group reached the trailhead by 8:30 p.m.
