SHELBURNE — Conservation officers say a Massachusetts woman was rescued Sunday afternoon after suffering a leg injury while hiking in Shelburne.

State Fish and Game conservation officers responded to a report of an injured hiker on the Peabody Brook Trail in Shelburne on Sunday around 2 p.m.

Conservation officers said the hiker, identified as Barbara Audin, 60, of Sudbury, Mass., had been hiking down the trail and was within a half mile of completing the hike when she slipped on a patch of ice, causing the injury to her lower leg.

A rescue effort was launched, with a conservation officer negotiating his ATV up to the injured hiker. Audin was able to get onto the back of the ATV and was driven out to a waiting ambulance.

Audin was evaluated by EMS personnel from Gorham Ambulance and transported to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for treatment.
