This past Thursday, May 16, New Hampshire Fish and Game was notified of a hiker injury in Mount Monadnock State Park just before 8 P.M.

The victim, an unidentified 17-year-old girl, went hiking in the park with two companions at approximately 4:30 that afternoon and had suffered the injury about an hour later, according to a news release from New Hampshire Fish and Game. The hiking group called 911 for assistance.

It was due to the location of the injured hiker that a team of over 20 rescuers assisted in bringing the young woman out of the park. These rescuers were from several different agencies, including Conservation Officers from New Hampshire Fish and Game, Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, The Jaffrey Fire Department, The Rindge Fire Department, and the Upper Valley Wilderness Response Team. The rescue team was able to stabilize the victim's injuries allowing for the victim to walk, assisted by rescuers, for short distances.

In the end, rescuers carried the victim for the remainder of the trail, arriving at the State Park Headquarters at around 2:30 AM. The victim was then taken to a local emergency room by her mother.
