TAMWORTH, N.H. (AP) - Rescue crews used coordinates from a cell phone to locate a Massachusetts couple who encountered trouble while hiking in New Hampshire on Mount Chocorua.
Fish & Game officials said a man called for help late Saturday afternoon after his wife broke her ankle.
Officers located the couple near the summit of the 3,490-feet-tall mountain and used lines to lower 45-year-old Emily Crane of Millbury, Mass., down steep sections of trail.
Officials said crews from more than a half-dozen agencies helped in the rescue effort. Rescuers got her off the mountain just before midnight.
