MONROE - A 72-year-old Monroe man lay alongside a trail for hours
after the all-terrain vehicle he was riding flipped backward on top
of him in the woods Wednesday.
In considerable pain, Irving
"Big Fella" Lang of Coppermine Road fired three shots into the air,
hoping to attract someone's attention.
Lang was preparing to
go hunting in the woods off Plain Road Wednesday morning when he
lost control of the ATV about 9:30 while headed up a steep trail,
New Hampshire Fish & Game officials said in a news release.
