SANDWICH, New Hampshire — A Massachusetts man is recovering from a fall on New Hampshire's Mount Israel that left him unable to walk and required rescue crews to carry him out.

New Hampshire Fish and Game says 65-year-old Anthony Rogers of Amherst, Massachusetts, was hiking on the Mead Trail in Sandwich on Saturday when he slipped on a rock about three miles from the nearest road.

About a dozen volunteers assisted Fish and Game conservation officers in carrying Rogers for about a mile and a half to a waiting fire department all-terrain vehicle. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.
