ALBANY, N.H. (AP) – Rescuers carried a 50-year-old Claremont man off a remote trail Sunday after he injured his ankle.

Robert Von Baltzer had hiked for about three miles on a trail in the White Mountain National Forest near Albany when he injured his left ankle, officials said.

State Fish and Game officials carried him out of the woods with help from firefighters and other rescuers. It took about four hours to get him off the trail, officials said.

He was treated at Conway Memorial Hospital.

He was with friends at the time. No one else was injured.
