An injured skier had to be rescued on New Hampshire’s Mount Lincoln Sunday afternoon.
Patrick Lweiler, 27, of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, reportedly suffered non-life threatening injuries while skiing a section of the mountain known as Lincoln’s Throat.
A cell phone call to 911 reported Lweiler had been injured shortly after 12:30 p.m. on Sunday. He was too injured to continue on his own, but a companion helped him down some of the route until rescuers from New Hampshire Fish and Game and the Pemigewasset Valley Search and Rescue Team reached him at 4:20 p.m.
Rescuers placed Lweiler in a rescue litter and transported him down the mountain, arriving at the trailhead at 5:45 p.m. His companion then took him for medical treatment.
