HILLSBOROUGH, NH – At approximately 11:05 a.m. on July 30, New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation Officers received a call from the Hillsborough Police Department asking for assistance with a 64- year-old male hiker who was suffering from a serious medical issue in Fox State Forest. The Hillsborough Police Department, Hillsborough Fire Department, and Conservation Officers responded to the park. The hiker had called 911 but was unable to give his exact location before losing cellular phone service. Just before Conservation Officers arrived the hiker was located at approximately 12:03 p.m. on the Ridge Trail by a member of the Hillsborough Fire Department. The hiker was then transported out of the woods to Center Road by the Hillsborough Fire Department using a UTV. From there he was transported to Concord Hospital. The hiker was identified as Jurgen Lange of Toms River, New Jersey.
NH Fish and Game Conservation Officers would like to remind anyone who ventures outdoors to prepare for the unexpected by leaving adequate time to hike and by carrying the essential equipment including a map, flashlight, food, water, extra layers, and to know your physical limitations.
