N.C. man hits head on rock while hiking Franconia Notch


FRANCONIA — A North Carolina man suffered a head injury after he fell on a trail on Mount Lafayette on Wednesday, authorities said.


James Page, of Yadkinville, fell on the Garfield Ridge Trail Wednesday morning and struck his head on a rock. Rescuers found him conscious, alert and "bleeding quite a lot," according to Fish and Game Sgt. Brian Suttmeier.


Page walked with assistance down the mountain to an ambulance, which took him to Speare Memorial Hospital in Plymouth with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
