Mt. Washington wind, snow lead to call for hiker’s rescue
Identified by New Hampshire Fish and Game officials only as a “young woman from East Haven, Conn.,” the victim and others in her group spent Monday night at the Lakes of the Clouds Appalachian Mountain Club Hut.
Hikers in the area headed for the AMC hut to summon help; AMC volunteers Arran Dindorf and Jeff Petersen responded.
“Despite low temperatures and driving wind and snow, the volunteers were able to remove her quickly.”
