Multiple rescues in White Mountains

Posted: Updated:

It was a busy weekend for rescue crews in New Hampshire's White Mountains.

Fish and Game conservation officers responded to three incidents on Saturday on Mount Washington and Mount Lafayette.

One involved a hiker who slipped and fell, another involved a man suffering medical issues and the third involved a hiking party that became disoriented while descending down the Cog Railway.

The department says in all cases, the hikers mostly had the appropriate gear. One group didn't have any prior experience hiking in the White Mountains and was not fully aware of the difficult terrain.
