Hypothermic Hiker On Mount Washington Calls For Help

Apr 4, 2016

A 25 year-old Pennsylvania man hiking on the Chandler Brook Trail on Mount Washington called for help yesterday saying he was wet and worried about hypothermia,  according to Fish and Game.

Evan Scott called for help about noon saying he and his dog were trying to cross a brook, when he slipped off a log and fell into knee-deep water in windy and snowy conditions, said Lt. Wayne Saunders.

Rescuers found Scott at the bottom of the trail. He’d changed footwear, warmed up and said he no longer needed help.
