ALBANY — A New Hampshire man was knocked unconscious while hiking in the White Mountain National Forest on Saturday.
According to New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, William Godin, 54 of Barrington was hiking with his wife on Mt. Chocorua when he lost his footing.
Around 1:15 p.m. Godin and his wife told NH Fish and Game officers that they were leaving the summit when the incident happened.
When NH Fish and Game responded to the call, they reported that Godin was awake and talking to rescue crews.
Godin was able to hike out on his own with minimal assistance, officials report.
Outdoor enthusiasts are encouraged by the NH Fish and Game to purchase Hike Safe cards to help in instances like this.
