MOUNT WASHINGTON, N.H. (AP) - State officials say good Samaritans helped a Massachusetts man who became ill and exhausted during a fundraising hike up Mt. Washington.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says a nurse practitioner and an EMT who were also hiking the Lion Head trail stopped to render aid to 62-year-old Wayne Taylor.

Officials say the Mashpee, Massachusetts man’s companions had tried to dial 911 but did not have a cellphone signal. One hiker continued to the summit to get help and a park official hiked down and guided the group to the Auto Road.

Taylor was transported to the base of the mountain and checked out by an ambulance crew but declined further treatment.
