Sixteen girls stranded while skiing on Mt. Cranmore at North Conway, N.H., were dramatically rescued yesterday afternoon by a party led by George J. Hill 2d, research fellow in Surgery and member of the Board of Freshman Advisers.
Hill used his skills as a skier and surgeon in climbing to an area near the top of the mountain after a ski patrol vehicle broke down and caring for the 12 injured children during the descent by toboggan. The youngsters had ignored warnings of dangerous ice in a roped-off area. Ten were hospitalized.
