PINKHAM NOTCH, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man was rescued by members of the Massachusetts Army National Guard after he fell and was injured while hiking in the White Mountains.

New Hampshire Fish and Game officials tell WMUR-TV (https://bit.ly/2bLaT82 ) that 38-year-old Michael Jones was injured Sunday afternoon while going down the Tuckerman Ravine Trail on Mount Washington.

Authorities say the Conway man accidentally stepped into a crack between two boulders and was thrown down a 12- to 15-foot drop.

A group of seven Army National Guard members out on an annual hike called 911 after finding Jones and his wife.

The men helped Jones back to the summit, where he was taken to Memorial Hospital for treatment of head and shoulder injuries.
