NH fish and game rescues man who suffered head trauma hiking Mt. Monadnock Sunday
JAFFREY — A man injured hiking down Mt. Monadnock on Sunday was rescued by the New Hampshire Fish and Game.
Crews from the New Hampshire Fish and Game reported that around 3:30 p.m. they received a call that a man had suffered significant head trauma.
Robert Avars, 26, of Nashua was reportedly hiking down Marlborough Trail when he came across several trees down that were blocking his path.
Avars then attempted to cut the trees with a pocket hand saw, said NH Fish and Game officials.
Reports show that one of the trees Avars was cutting had bent a small sapling underneath it which flew back up hitting him in the head.
According to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Avars was able to walk down the rest of the way with assistance from conservation officers.
Avars was transported to a local hospital by a friend and treated for head trauma, NH Fish and Game reported.
