Two hikers from Maine were rescued from Mount Chocorua in the White Mountains Monday night, according to a news release from New Hampshire Fish and Game.
Joshua Hayes, 26, and Emily Smith, 27, both from Shapleigh, Maine, underestimated the time it would take to climb the mountain and get back down before dark and then missed a turn, the release said.
The pair had neither lights nor a map but did get a cell signal so they could call for help. Fish and Game got their latitude and longitude from their cell phone and then called and told them to build a fire and wait.
