Fellow hiker helps injured man near Mount Washington

August 21, 2019

PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a fellow hiker came to the aid of a man who injured his leg at a trail junction below the summit of Mount Washington.

Thirty-year-old Steven Brandon, of Brighton, Massachusetts, was descending the Tuckerman Ravine trail on Tuesday evening when he slipped on a rock. He had been hiking alone. Another hiker came along, called for help and stayed with him.

Brandon attempted to hike with the assistance of trekking poles. He was able to make it toward the Mount Washington Auto Road, where he and the good Samaritan hiker met conservation officers. He was taken back to the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center, where he had started his hike.
