THORNTON, N.H. (AP) — A 55-year-old hiker on a mountain trail in New Hampshire has died after suffering a medical emergency, state Fish and Game Department officers said.

Officers said the man, from Concord, Massachusetts, had collapsed while hiking the Welch and Dickey Trail in Thornton on Tuesday. People with him and a passer-by who was a medical professional immediately started CPR, and first responders assisted. But they were not successful.

The man’s name was not released.
