BEANS GRANT, N.H. (AP) – New Hampshire Fish and Game officers say a Massachusetts woman is safe after falling and injuring her leg while hiking near Mount Eisenhower.

Officers say 43-year-old Monette Verrier, of Reading, Massachusetts, was hiking with friends Friday afternoon on the Edmands Path when she slipped on wet, exposed roots.

Verrier’s companions called for help.

Conservation officers and rescue workers met Verrier on the trail at about 4:45 p.m. when Verrier and her friends were about 1.2 miles in from the trailhead.

The group reached the trailhead in Crawfords Purchase at about 6 p.m.

Verrier was taken to the hospital by a member of her hiking party.
