Two sets of hikers had to be rescued from the White Mountains because they were unprepared for the terrain and cold, windy conditions.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says a 77-year-old Florida man and 71-year-old woman from New York were found at 11:20 Friday night off the Tuckerman Ravine trail after requesting a rescue. Both had hypothermia.

Volunteers had to work overnight to get them to safety. The woman was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

Also, two 35-year-old women from Minneapolis, Minnesota, had been stranded on the Huntington Ravine Trail, one of the region's most difficult trails, and called for help.

Fish and Game officers gave them warm clothing and helped them reach safety.
