Officials say falling ice struck and killed a Massachusetts woman who was hiking with her family in New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says the 57-year-old Wellesley woman was injured around noon Sunday.

WFXT-TV reports the woman was hiking with a group of 10 people on the Frankenstein Cliff Trail in Hart's Location when a falling piece of ice struck her in the head.

Multiple agencies responded to the scene and the woman was taken to a hospital where she later died.

The woman's name has not been released.
