New Hampshire Fish and Game says climber fell to their death
WEARE, N.H. (AP) — A climber died after falling from a cliff near the Everett Dam in Clough State Park in the town of Weare, the New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game says.
Rescue crews were called about 4 p.m. Sunday after receiving a report of an individual who had been climbing the cliff that was off the trail and was not a designated climbing area.
The individual had no climbing gear or safety equipment, officials say.
Life-saving measures by members of the Weare Fire Department and police were unsuccessful.
Rescue personnel utilized high-angle, rope-rescue techniques to recover the victim, whose name is being withheld until relatives can be notified.
