Rescuers use trail in Canada to get to injured hiker

The Associated Press

PITTSBURG — Rescuers say they saved time by using a trail in Canada to get to an injured hiker on Shatney Mountain in Pittsburg, New Hampshire, less than half a mile from United States Port of Entry.

They say 60-year-old Marie Boyd of Rancho Cucamonga, California, suffered an ankle injury after losing her footing on the wet trail during a passing storm Thursday. A member of her group hiked down to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection station to make the 911 call for help, while her daughter stayed with her on the trail.

Rescuers used an access trail on the Canadian side of the border, which led a rescue ATV and trailer to within 300 feet of Boyd. She was carried out and taken to a hospital in Colebrook.
