LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says a Georgia woman has been rescued from a Mount Washington trail after suffering an allergic reaction from an insect sting.
Authorities say 28-year-old Claudia Dudley of Atlanta was hiking with her husband, Josh, when they were swarmed by yellow jackets or bees around 11 a.m. Thursday. Claudia Dudley began having difficulty breathing after being stung.
Her husband administered two doses of epinephrine from an auto injector but called for help when she also began having pain. She was carried down the trail and taken to a hospital for further treatment.
Conservation officers were assisted by officers from a local fire department, a search and rescue team, the U.S. Forest Service, the Appalachian Mountain Club and good Samaritans.
