Hikers Injured in Separate Incidents on New Hampshire's Mount Monadnock

New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials say two hikers injured in separate accidents have been rescued on Mount Monadnock.

Conservation Officers provided medical care to 26-year-old Robert Ayars, of Nashua, Saturday afternoon after he was struck in the head by a tree sapling as he tried to clear downed trees while on the Marlborough Trail. He was later able to walk down and was taken to the hospital by a friend.

Around the same time on the opposite side of the mountain, 58-year-old Terri Lynn Waters, of Douglas, Massachusetts, fell on a steep section of White Arrow Trail and suffered a lower leg injury that required her to be carried down the mountain. She was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
