LANCASTER (AP) — New Hampshire Fish and Game conservation officers were busy juggling two rescue missions in the northern White Mountains.
Officials say both calls came in at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday. One involved a missing couple on Mount Madison who had forgotten to pack lighting gear; the other involved an injured ice climber near Pinnacle Gully on Mount Washington.
Conservation officers directed the Mount Madison hiking party that had safely reached their car to go back up the Pine Link Trail with lights to assist their friends and expedite the search process, which ended successfully at about 8:30 p.m.
Meanwhile, conservation officers and other rescuers found the injured ice climber — David Fogg of Enfield — on the Huntington Ravine Trail and used an ATV to get him off the mountain early Sunday morning.
