 Jaffrey–   While Conservation Officers were searching for a drowning victim on the Connecticut River, they were notified of an injured hiker in need of assist on Mount Monadnock.   With limited volunteers, Monadnock State Park Personnel requested assistance in the carry out.  MacKenzie Martin (22) of Columbus, Ohio was descending the White Cross trail when she injured her lower leg after slipping on a muddy slope and landed awkwardly.  She was unable to walk and called directly to park headquarters for assistance. Once first aid was administered on the mountain, Martin was carried out by a litter.

 

With the recent rain, many trails are saturated and footing can be difficult.  Remember to take your time and watch your step.  Always plan ahead and HIKE SAFE.
