THOMPSON AND MESERVE'S PURCHASE, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say a Maine hiker has died after suffering a medical emergency while climbing New Hampshire's Mount Jefferson.

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department says 63-year-old Gregory Larson was stricken Friday afternoon near the summit of the 5,712-foot mountain. His companions performed CPR while rescue hikers and a hospital helicopter were dispatched to help.
