Injured Man Spends Night On Mount Eisenhower

Nov 7, 2011

A Massachusetts man who injured his ankle spent Saturday night alone on Mount Eisenhower in freezing temperatures before being rescued late Sunday afternoon.

According to a news release from Fish and Game Sergio Mori, 41, of Brookline, was coming down the Edmands’s Path when he hurt his ankle.

He couldn’t walk and didn’t have cell phone coverage so wound up spending the night on the mountain. While temperatures were below freezing Mori was “very well prepared for his hike,” according to Fish and Game.

Sunday morning another hiker saw Mori and was able to call for help. Mori was helped down the mountain and taken to Littleton Regional Hospital about 5:10 pm for treatment.

In addition to Fish and Game rescuers included a forest ranger and members from Twin Mountain Fire and Rescue.
