Rescue volunteers carry an injured NH hiker for over 7 hours


LANCASTER – Rescue volunteers carried an injured hiker out of the woods for over seven hours on Sunday.

The hiker, Michael Wainer, was helping his wife cross a river on the Six Husbands Trail when the log he was standing on broke. Wainer fell into the water and injured his leg and was unable to get out of the water.

An AMC employee was hiking when he came across Wainer in the water.

With no cellphone service, the employee hiked out over four miles to call for help.

Emergency responders hiked the four and a half miles in to reach Wainer where other volunteers joined them.

Wainer was carried over two miles by rescue personnel until an ATV was able to reach them and transport Michael Wainer to the Androscoggin Valley Hospital where he was treated for his injuries.
