NH Fish and Game aids 2nd hiker within 24 hours on Mount Monadnock trail
JAFFERY — Fish and Game responded to a second lower leg injury on the White Cross Trail in less than 24 hours Sunday.
New Hampshire Conservation Officers were called to assist a man who had injured the lower part of his leg while coming down Mount Monadnock on Sunday.
Fish and Game said Kevin Pearce, 49, of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, needed to be carried down the rest of the mountain after hurting himself hiking.
Pearce was hiking alone and called park personnel himself for assistance.
The New Hampshire Conservation Department thanked all of the volunteer's who stepped up to help Pearce down the the rest of the way.
As a reminder, The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department urges all adventurers to purchase a "Hiker Safe" card to help support New Hampshire's rescue efforts.
