The recent spate of hiker rescues and carry-outs continued Wednesday

BEAN’S GRANT, N.H. — The recent spate of hiker rescues and carry-outs continued Wednesday with the carryout of a Rhode Island man off the Edmands Path. Fish & Game conservation officers were notified at about 12:45 p.m. of a hiker with an unknown leg injury incurred while descending Edmands Path in Bean’s Grant. The call had come in via 911 and the GPS coordinate placed the hiker two miles up from the trailhead off Mt. Clinton Rd. The hiker, identified as Michael Haley, 61, of Coventry, RI was working his way down a steep section of trail when he was injured. He and his wife attempted to splint the injured leg and tried to continue down, but he was unable to continue under his own power, and a rescue response was initiated with multiple conservation officers and volunteers from the Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue Team.
