JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire officials say a Massachusetts woman had to be rescued after suffering a leg injury while hiking down Mount Monadnock.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 27-year-old Mia Parviainan of Lowell hurt herself Saturday afternoon while descending from the summit of the 3,165-foot mountain in Jaffrey.

Officials say Fish and Game employees, volunteers, and students and staff from Franklin Pierce University hiked up the mountain in pouring rain and carried Parviainan on a stretcher down one of the mountain’s steepest trails.
