Hiker dies at Miller State Park
PETERBOROUGH — A hiker died in Miller State Park Sunday afternoon.
According to New Hampshire Fish and Game officials, at 12:30 p.m. Sunday a hiker descending the Marion Davis Trail at Miller State Park found a 70-year-old hiker, unconscious and unresponsive, approximately a quarter mile from the trail head on Pack Monadnock Mountain.
Rescue teams reached the victim at around 12:55 p.m., but attempts at resuscitating the victim were unsuccessful. New Hampshire Fish and Game Conservation officers, members of the Temple police department, the Temple Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, the DRED Division of Parks and Recreation, and Peterborough fire rescue department members assisted in carrying out the victim, whose name was withheld last night pending notification of next-of-kin.
Temple police are investigating the death, which officials consider 'untimely,' but not suspicious.
