According to Union Leader, a Florida man had to be rescued on Mt. Madison, NH after heavy snow and high winds moved into the region. On Wednesday morning, conservation officers were notified on an emergency beacon notification on Mt. Madison. It was traced back to Andrew Carlson of Madeira Beach, FL and attempts to contact him were unsuccessful.
As a result, they launched a rescue mission to locate Andrew. Several members of the Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue and the Fish and Game Advanced Search and Rescue Team responded. At the time, wind chills were below zero, winds were around 40mph, and snow accumulations were upwards of 3 feet at high elevations.
After several hours of trudging through waist-deep snow, they located Andrew huddled under a building, where he was seeking shelter from the elements. Thankfully, he was cold, but alive. He was able to hike out under his own power.
