Canadian hikers rescued from NH's Mount Adams

LANCASTER, N.H. - Two hikers from Canada are safe after getting lost on New Hampshire's Mount Adams.

New Hampshire Fish and Game says the pair had hiked to the summit on Saturday and were heading to a shelter to spend the night but took the wrong trail in the wind and rain and ended up in King Ravine, a treacherous boulder field.

Worried about the approaching ice storm, one of the men used a satellite tracker emergency beacon, which triggered a call to authorities.

New Hampshire officials were notified around 6:45 p.m., found the hikers just before midnight and brought them to safety by 4 a.m.

Officials say the pair was fortunate because they had plenty of gear, including a bivy sack and sleeping bags.
