SANDWICH, N.H. (AP) - Rescuers have come to the aid of hiker who fell and suffered a leg injury on the Eagle Cliff Trail in Sandwich, New Hampshire.

Linda Allen of Moultonborough was hiking with family and friends when she lost her footing and slid nearly 12 feet, injuring her lower leg on Wednesday afternoon.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says rescuers were able to quickly access and treat Allen before carrying her nearly a half mile to the trailhead. She was taken to a hospital.
