Bay State Hiker Dies In New Hampshire

A Massachusetts hiker has died after having a medical emergency on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail.

His name is being withheld while family is notified.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says the 57-year-old was hiking with his two daughters when he collapsed about 2.5 miles from the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Pinkham Notch Visitors Center.

One of the girls ran back down the trail for help.

Other hikers stopped to help and AMC staff arrived they were unable to revive him.

He was transported down the mountain by Fish and Game conservation officers, AMC staff and Mountain Rescue Service volunteers.
