NEWBURY, N.H. (AP) - Officials say a 46-year-old woman required rescue after she was injured while hiking New Hampshire’s Mount Sunapee over the weekend.

WMUR-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1VPUcYz ) New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials say the woman was a couple of hours into a three-day hike up the Merrimack County mountain when she fell and hurt her ankle on Sunday.

The woman, who was hiking alone, called 911 just before 1 p.m. to report her injury.

A team of Fish and Game conservation officers, local firefighters and a volunteer search and rescue team used the woman’s GPS coordinates to locate her. She was found on a trail near Lake Solitude.

Fish and Game officials say the woman was well-prepared and experienced, which is further evidence that everyone should take the proper precautions while hiking.
