Camp counselors credited with saving NH hiker



A New Hampshire man has suffered serious injuries after falling about 60 feet down a slippery slab near a waterfall in the White Mountain National Forest.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 24-year-old Devin Arn of Twin Mountain was hiking alone near the falls Wednesday afternoon when he lost his footing and slid down a wet rock face.

Five camp counselors between the ages of 18 and 22 witnessed the fall. Authorities say they saved him from falling down a second waterfall and called 911 for help.

Other volunteers set up a pulley system to get Arn off the mountain. He was airlifted to the Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, Maine, where he was listed in serious condition.
