WATERVILLE VALLEY — Conservation officers say a Massachusetts woman severely injured an ankle while hiking in Waterville Valley on Saturday.

According to New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officer Jonathan Demler, officials received a call around 2 p.m. on Saturday reporting an injured hiker on the Sandwich Mountain Trail in Waterville Valley. According to Demler, a woman identified as Carmen Maianu, 35, of Needham, Mass., was hiking with a party of friends when she severely injured an ankle, just after summiting Sandwich Mountain.

Others in her hiking group attempted to rescue Maianu but called 911 requesting help. Officers from the Waterville Valley Department of Public Safety and a conservation officer with the New Hampshire Fish & Game Department responded to provide assistance. The rescue party reached Maianu on the Sandwich Mountain Trail just after 4 p.m. and helped her with the rest of the descent. The group reached the trailhead around 7:30 p.m.
