Man rescued from Mount Washington

September 14, 2014

LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire authorities say a Massachusetts man spent a cold, rainy night lost on Mount Washington as the temperature dropped into the 30s.

New Hampshire Fish and Game says 55-year-old Chris Trottier was hiking down the mountain with his sons Saturday when he began suffering from a preexisting medical condition. Authorities say Trottier and one of his sons then got in an argument, and they separated for the last part of their descent. The sons waited for several hours and then returned home, and Trottier’s wife reported him missing around 9:30 p.m.

Rescue parties found Trottier off the trail around 3:30 a.m. Sunday. He was cold, wet and disorientated but able to walk out with help, and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
