NORTON, Vt. (AP) - State troopers say a New Hampshire man is dead after he was snowmobiling with his friends near the Canadian border in Vermont and suffered a medical event.

Vermont State Police say 54-year-old Andrew Boright, of Piermont, New Hampshire was on a snowmobile trail with a group near state Route 114 in Norton on Wednesday when some of the vehicles became stuck.

Boright helped remove the sleds but told the others he wasn’t feeling well. Police say the group continued riding and later discovered Boright wasn’t with them.

An off-duty Orleans County sheriff’s deputy later found Boright slumped over on his snowmobile. He died at the scene.

State police are investigating. They say Boright’s death doesn’t appear suspicious or to have been caused by an accident.

An autopsy is planned.
