MSP Save Two Hikers

According to ABC 6 in Providence, Massachusetts State Police rescued two stranded hikers in the Mount Washington State Forest during an overnight snowstorm.Police said the hours-long rescue began just before 8:00 p-m. on Tuesday when a 9-1-1 call from one of the hikers detailed their situation who said him and his friend were hiking on the Alander Trail in the state forest near the New York and Connecticut state lines when the winter weather began to worsen updating officers that the snow was covering the trail markers and had filled in their tracks so they could not retrace their steps back down the mountain. The search party stated the snow was roughly two feet deep and the snowmobiles couldn’t clear the trails. Finally at 2:30 a.m. the search team located the two hikers who were suffering from fatigue and cold temperatures but were not injured. More than two hours later, the search team and the hikers made it out of the forest and reached the DCR headquarters where the two men were taken to a nearby hospital.
