GORHAM, N.H. (AP) - Fish and Game officers have rescued a 62-year-old Virginia hiker who injured his ankle.

George Gault of Virginia Beach, Va., started to hike the Appalachian Trail in Gorham on Sunday, heading toward Maine. But he injured his ankle and decided to hike out Monday morning but the injury grew worse and he called for help on his cell phone.

Fish and Game conservation officers and members of Androscoggin Valley Search and Rescue found him on the Mahoosuc Trail on Mount Hayes and helped him out of the wilderness. He was treated at Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin.
