Cranston Mom, 2-Year-Old Son Rescued after Getting Lost on NH Mountain

GPS from Carrie Readey's cell phone helped rescuers find them.

A Cranston woman and her 2-year-old son were rescued by New Hampshire Fish and Game officers yesterday after they got lost on a hike on North Pack Monadnock Mountain.

According to a Fish and Game Department news release, Carrie Readey, 30, called 911 around 5 p.m. and said she got lost on the trail. She and her son were getting cold, she said.

Dispatchers used GPS coordinates from Readey's phone to help officers find her and her son. They were found safely around 7:30 p.m.

Readey was also with her two dogs when they became lost near Cliff Trail on the mountain. She told officers she began her hike at Ted's trailhead on Mountain Road but lost the trail near the intersection of Cliff trail.

Officers Todd Szewczyk and Eric Hannett located Readey.

This woman should be made to pay for those services by the F & G dept.

This is a classic example of a person too dumb to be allowed to have children. She's right up there with the suntan lady!

Why are you MEN attacking this woman because she got lost? It was a mistake and I'm sure easy to do on a mountain. I'm sure if it was another man that this happened to you would be defending him with a bunch of lame excuses. Fortunately, her cell phone had reception and this didn't turn into a tragedy. Grow up and get your hands off your foot balls!!!
