Stranded Hikers Found on Mt. Lafayette-Activates emergency beacon
Two Canadian hikers were found on Mt. Lafayette after one of them activated his SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger. New Hampshire Fish and Game Department officials rescued the two hikers, after they ran into severe conditions on the mountain. "The only information that led us to starting the search was that we had this personal locator beacon signal activated," said Capt. John Wimsatt. "Otherwise, we wouldn't be searching."
