An injured hiker was rescued from Mount Monadnock on Thursday amidst a heavy rainstorm. 

According to a press release from New Hampshire Fish and Game, Theresa Daigle, 38, of Apex, North Carolina, slipped and injured her leg while descending the White Dot Trail around 2 p.m. Thursday. 

She was hiking with family who were able to call for assistance and kept her warm and as comfortable as possible until first responders could arrive.

Fish and Game officers, state park staff and a few passing hikers carried Daigle down the mountain during the height of a passing thunderstorm, which made for treacherous, slippery conditions.

Daigle was transported to Monadnock Community Hospital by Jaffrey-Rindge Memorial Ambulance for treatment of her injuries.

New Hampshire Fish and Game would like to remind hikers to hike prepared by taking simple steps to be ready for an emergency. For a list of recommended items to add to your pack, please check out the HikeSafe website at http://www.hikesafe.com.
