Rescued hiker, climber grateful to state, volunteer searchers
Osborne lost his lower right leg and toes on his left foot.
On Saturday, Osborne, a teacher at Southern New Hampshire Montessori Academy, set out on a seven-day bicycle ride in California to raise money for the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Scoville continues to recover at his mother's home from a head injury, collapsed lungs, broken ribs and cracked vertebrae.
While mistakes were made in both incidents, they were not deemed negligent by the state, according to Fish and Game Col. Martin Garabedian.
Proposed legislation would encourage hikers to buy the card for $25 a year.
Although the state can charge negligent hikers for reasonable rescue costs, those would be waived if the rescued person had purchased the card, much like an insurance plan.
