RANDOLPH — A fast response on Mount Madison Wednesday afternoon may have saved the life of a Manchester, Vt., woman found unconscious and unresponsive, according to Fish and Game officials.
A hiking companion discovered Caroline G Eyman, 22, about one mile from the Appalachia Trailhead at the intersection of Beechwood Trail and Airline Trail, officials said.
Three conservation officers responded to the 1:41 p.m. call with blue lights and sirens.
Conservation Officer James Cyrs sprinted ahead and was first to arrive on the scene at 2:29 p.m. officials said.
He was able to stabilize Eyman with the help of Gorham EMS officials.
Fish and Game officers, Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue and the Appalachian Mountain Club staff all took part in the carry-out of Eyman. It took only 12 minutes to get her to a waiting ambulance, officials said.
Gorham Ambulance brought Eyman to Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin for treatment; she is expected to recover, Fish and Game said.
