A Massachusetts teenager was rescued Monday night from the White Mountains in Albany, N.H., after hurting her ankle, officials said.
Just before 8 p.m., Alyssa Chahed, 18, of Pembroke, “severely injured” her ankle while descending the Weetamoo Trail on Mount Chocorua, according to the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department.
“Chahed attempted to bear weight on her injured ankle but was unable to,” officials said.
She was traveling with two friends who called 911, officials said. A rescue team went to their location, about two miles from the trailhead.
Rescuers carried Chahed back to the trailhead in a stretcher, returning just before midnight, officials said. Her friends drove her to seek medical attention, officials said.
