Dartmouth College Pays Fish and Game for Cost of Student's Rescue

Dartmouth College has paid the New Hampshire Fish and Game department $19,000 to the cover the cost of a two-day search and rescue effort after a student got lost during a school-sponsored hike.

Authorities said it was a miracle that 21-year-old Arun Anand was found alive on Mount Moosilauke in May. Citing a number of "troubling factors," the college has promised to both scrutinize the qualifications of staffers leading such trips and take steps to better prepare students.

Fish and Game Col. Kevin Jordan told the Valley News he is impressed with the response.

Though the college has paid the agency for what it spent, it still could be on the hook for another $40,000 if the Air National Guard bills the state for the helicopter used during the search.
