THORNTON, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Fish and Game officers say a 55-year-old hiker on a mountain trail in New Hampshire has died after suffering a medical emergency.

Officers said the man, from Concord, Massachusetts, had collapsed while hiking the Welch and Dickey Trail in Thornton on Tuesday. People with him and a passer-by who was a medical professional immediately started CPR, and first responders assisted. But they were not successful.

The man’s name was not released.
