The Granite State has once again been named the best state in which to raise a child. A Report recently released by the Annie E. Casey Foundation listed New Hampshire as the top state when it comes to top overall child well-being.
Massachusetts and Vermont took the second and third spots on the list.
The study measured 2015 data from the private Population Reference Bureau by combining data in the areas of economic well-being, education, health, and family and community to derive a composite index of overall child well-being for each state.
The study found that nationally children experienced gains in the Economic Well-Being and Health domains, but setbacks in the Education and Family and Community domains. T
he Annie E. Casey Foundation is a nonprofit group focused on improving the well-being of American children.

Success, NH – A sick hiker was rescued in the White Mountains yesterday. Officials with New Hampshire Fish and Game said that at 4pm 55-year-old Eryc Christofes of Pennsylvania was hiking a portion of the Appalachian Trail near the summit of Mt. Success when he had struck by an undisclosed illness. The thru hiker who reported the incident and three of his companions stayed with Christofes, giving him liquids and support until rescuers could arrive.
Conservation officers and members of the Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue had begun hiking up the Success Trail near Success Lake to Christofes when they were informed that Christofes had recovered enough to attempt to close the distance between them. At 5:56pm the thru hikers called in reporting that Christofes had reached the junction of the Mahoosuc Trail and Success Trail and would be starting down.
Rescuers made contact with the hikers approximately 1.5 miles from the trail head ,where Christfes was given a medical assessment on the trail and after re-hydrating and rest was able to hike out under his own power making it down at 8pm.
He was then transported to Androscoggin Valley Hospital (AVH) in Berlin for further medical treatment and evaluation.
