The 57-year-old man who died on the Tuckerman Ravine Trail Monday has been identified as Gary Muise of Sharon, Massachusetts.
Muise was hiking with his teenage daughters when he collapsed about two and one-half miles from the Pinkham Notch Visitor’s Center, according to a news release from New Hampshire Fish and Game.
Rescuers were not able to revive him.
Fish and Game said he died as the result of a "medical emergency" and an autopsy is planned.
The body of a Massachusetts man who fell into a crevasse in the Tuckerman Ravine in April was recovered early Monday, according to a news release from the White Mountain National Forest.
Norman Priebatsch, 67, tripped while hiking and slid into a deep crevasse on April 1st.
While a searcher was partially lowered into the crevasse shortly after he fell the body couldn’t be seen and experts concluded he couldn’t have survived such a fall.
Additional efforts were suspended out of fear that a rescuer could be hurt or killed, officials said.
