Weare man, passenger found safe in Dunbarton after ATV breakdown

DUNBARTON – A Weare man and his passenger were found safe in Clough State Park in Dunbarton around midnight Sunday after he had a mechanical breakdown on his ATV.

Jesse Vajgrt, 20, and his passenger, Carissa Swiserski, 20, of Bedford, were located in Clough State Park on the Sugar Hill Loop Trail.

Vajgrt called 911 about 11 p.m. to report that he and Swiserski had been overcome by darkness after his ATV broke down. He also reported that Swiserski was having some difficulty breathing due to a medical condition.

After the 911 call came in, personnel from Dubarton Police, Weare Police, N.H. Fish and Game, and Dunbarton Fire Departments were dispatched to the ATV parking area off Ray Road in Dunbarton. Shortly after their arrival, at the parking area, members of the Dunbarton police and fire departments began walking toward the pair's last known location on the Sugar Hill Loop Trail.

Rescue personnel located Vajgrt and Swiserski on foot about a mile from the parking area. Both were found safe with no injuries.

Once the two were evaluated by EMTs, Sgt. LaCrosse of the N.H. Fish and Game Department took Vajgrt back to his ATV, about three miles from the parking area. They were able to get Vajgrt's ATV running and they successfully got the machine back to the parking area.
