by Tony on July 15, 2019

A New York hiker suffered a head injury while hiking in the Dry River Wilderness this past Saturday. New Hampshire Fish and Game say 58-year-old Denise Blank was hiking the Dry River Trail when she slipped down an embankment and injured her head around 10:30am. Lacking cell reception, a member of her group hiked three and a half miles to make a call for help. Conservation Officers, Bartlett Fire Department, SOLO Wilderness Medicine, Lakes Region Search and Rescue, the Appalachian Mountain Club, Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue and the US Forest Service all responded to the call. Denise was placed in a litter and carried back to the trailhead shortly before 7:00 in the evening. She was taken to Memorial Hospital by the Bartlett Jackson Ambulance. Authorities say Denise and her group were well prepared for the conditions.
