One woman had quite a scare.
Hiker wanders in woods. Hiker becomes lost and can't figure out where she is. Cue the understandable panic. This might sound like something out of a classic horror movie, but thanks to North Andover police and firefighters, it wasn't. Police recieved a report Saturday night of a hiker lost in Harold Parker State Forest, just after 9:30 p.m. Rescuers ordered an airwing to help find the woman, and by 10 p.m. she was found, safe and sound. North Andover Police said she was doing well physically when she was brought out of the forest.
