Belmont woman dies while hiking in Sandwich, N.H.

A 48-year-old woman from Massachusetts died while hiking on a trail in Sandwich, N.H., Saturday morning, officials said.

Aida Repuh Grabovac, of Belmont, was hiking with several friends about half a mile from the start of the Wentworth Trail when she began experiencing chest pains shortly before noon, said Kevin Jordan, chief of Law Enforcement at New Hampshire Fish and Game.

Her friends called 911 for help. First responders arrived at the trail and tried to resuscitate her, but were unsuccessful.

“She suffered a great onset of severe chest pain,” Jordan said. “She fell to the ground and was unresponsive before [first responders] got to the scene.”
