Missing Hiker May Be Billed For Rescue Operation In New Hampshire
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Pro tip - if the text is important, make sure it goes through. Poor Christophe Chamley. He was hiking in the mountains of New Hampshire, and instead of returning home he checked into a luxury hotel to rest. He messaged his wife that he was fine, but it didn't go through and she called 911. Rescuers on a National Guard helicopter were dispatched, and officials say Mr. Chamley may have to pay the cost of all that. That is allowed under New Hampshire law if a rescuee behaves recklessly.
