LINCOLN, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say a Massachusetts woman had to be carried out of Franconia Notch State Park after she injured her leg while hiking.

New Hampshire fish and game conservation officers received a call about 3 p.m. Wednesday that a hiker had been hurt. Two conservation officers and rescue workers from Pemi-Valley Search and Rescue and Appalachian Mountain Club located the hiker an hour later about a half mile from a campground.

Fifty-six-year-old Karen Hannan, of Lowell, Massachusetts, was carried to an ambulance and taken to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.
