BEANS GRANT, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game says a 14-year-old Massachusetts boy was rescued from a trail on Mount Eisenhower in Beans Grant after he suffered an asthma attack.
On Wednesday afternoon, rescue crews were called to the Edmands Path after receiving a report the boy had suffered an asthma attack.
The boy recovered from the attack using inhalers, but he didn't feel well and he had trouble breathing.
It took rescue crews almost two hours to reach the boy 1.8 miles from the trailhead.
More than 20 volunteers, including members of the boy's hiking party, helped carry the boy to where he could be evaluated by an ambulance crew. He was then released.
