Warm weather over the weekend and climbing a 4,000 footer in the North Country was a bad combination for a Penacook man.
NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports.
Early Sunday afternoon hiking companions of a 51-year-old man used a cell phone to call for help.
Lt. James Kneeland of Fish and Game said the problem was apparently heat related.
“Dehydration, heat stroke. Something along those lines to the point where he was losing, in and out of consciousness.”
