Ohio Couple Rescued From Mount Washington

Fish and Game officers rescued two Ohio hikers from a trail on Mount Washington Thursday night because the pair didn’t have flashlights.

The husband and wife, Robert Scanlon and Candy Neville – both in their mid-60’s - from Shaker, Heights Ohio, rode the Mount Washington Cog Railway to the top of Mount Washington, Fish and Game Lt. Wayne Saunders said in a news release.

Then, they decided to hike down on the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail.

But Scanlon began having knee pain on the rocky trail, slowing their descent and it got dark before they could reach the bottom.

Fish and Game officers with extra flashlights hiked up the trail and escorted them down.
