Rescuers located the hiker after an hour, enduring driving rain and blowing snow. Officials said Xi was unresponsive and in a highly hypothermic state.

While trying to warm him up, the agency said rescuers detected signs of life despite him remaining unresponsive. Rescuers then raced to carry the hiker up toward the summit of Mt. 워싱턴, trekking over a mile in rain and buffeting winds.

At the summit, rescuers placed the hiker in a truck and drove him down to the base where an ambulance was waiting to rush him to the hospital. After several hours of life saving efforts, Xi was pronounced dead.

Officials said that multiple other hikers ignored the forecasted weather conditions and instead of turning back or bailing to safer elevations, they pressed on and ultimately called 911 expecting a rescue.

Sometimes having enough gear is not enough,” 기관은 말했다. “In weather conditions experienced this weekend it is better to descend and get out of the wind and cold instead of pushing on until it is too late.
