EASTON - Rescuers came to the aid of a Canadian hiker who fell and injured her leg on the Mount Kinsman Trail on Thursday afternoon.
According to the N.H. Fish and Game Department, 77-year-old Monique Jeanmart, from Outremont, Quebec, was hiking with her husband. The pair had set out from the trail head off Route 116 that morning and it was on their way back down that she fell and hurt her leg.
