Hiker Rescued From Mount Cardigan

Feb 27, 2016

A 31-year-old man suffering from hypothermia and a leg injury was rescued late Friday afternoon from Mount Cardigan in Orange, according to New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Mark Ireland of Somerville fell as he was leaving the summit and couldn’t walk, said Lt. James Kneeland, of Fish and Game.

Kneeland said Ireland was hiking alone, lacked much of the winter gear needed for safe travel and was lucky that several other hikers found him.

He was later carried off the mountain by rescuers and taken to Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center.
