LINCOLN — An injured hiker was able to walk out of the wilderness with some assistance from Fish and Game Officers on Thursday.
N.H. Fish and Game said they received a report of an injured hiker on the Falling Waters Trail around 3 p.m.
Officers learned that 51-year-old Lisa Harlow from Haverhill, Massachusetts, was hiking with her daughter when she lost her footing and fell on the trail, suffering several non-life-threatening injuries. Another hiker that was not in Harlow’s hiking party witnessed the fall and called 911 to report the accident and request help.
Fish and Game officers responded to the Falling Waters Trail and found Harlow on the trail about 1.2 miles from the trailhead.
Officers administered first aid to Harlow for her injuries, and she was able to walk out with some assistance from Fish and Game Officers.
Harlow arrived at the trailhead around 7 p.m. and refused any further medical treatment.
