NH-Fish-GameA Bethlehem PA man was rescued on the Appalachian Trail on Moose Mountain in Lyme on Monday. Fish and Game Officials say Andrew Hyduke 63, and a companion had planned a nine-day excursion on the trail when he developed a lower leg injury. Crews from Hanover Fire Department, Lyme Fire Department, Orford Fire Department, Thetford VT Fire Department, along with Conservation Officers from the NH Fish and Game Department, and volunteers from the Upper Valley Wilderness Response Team responded to the trail head shortly before 10 am.   The injured hiker was located approximately 1.5 mile south of Goose Pond Road on the Appalachian Trail.  Once rescue crews arrived with Mr. Hyduke, paramedics were able to stabilize a lower leg injury and carried the injured hiker to an ambulance shortly after noontime.  Hyduke was transported by Hanover Fire Department to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for further evaluation of his injuries.
