A Massachusetts woman died Tuesday after being swept away by the waters of New Hampshire’s Swift River, officials said. WMUR-TV reported that New Hampshire Fish and Game officials identified the dead woman as Siphal Hak, 56, of Lowell. A second Massachusetts woman, Sanamaran Keo, 60, of Dracut, was rescued by the Conway Fire Department about 1,000 feet below the river’s Lower Falls in White Mountain National Forest. Officials said the women had been wading in the river at a picnic and swimming area above the falls when they slipped and were carried downriver. They went over the falls while trying to help each other from the water.
