HART’S LOCATION, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire officials have identified the 60-year-old man who died Saturday while hiking in the White Mountains.

Officials say Byrne had been hiking with family and friends. Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

An autopsy was to be conducted to determine the cause of death.
