On Thursday, James Clark, 80, was hiking with two family members in Sargent's Purchase, New Hampshire. But early into the hike, two members of the party left Clark behind and continued to summit Lion Head Trail without him, breaking hiker protocol, according to a press release from New Hampshire Fish and Game.

The pair went down a different way, so they didn't cross paths with Clark again. Around 7:45 pm, they called rescue personnel, alerting them that Clark was still on the trail without proper overnight gear - including a cellphone or a flashlight.

Now, New Hampshire Fish and Game officials might fine Clark's family for the cost of the hours-long mission.

"We will be looking at charges for the billing of the search and rescue," Fish and Game Major Dave Walsh told the Union Leader.

Walsh said the family members broke hiking protocol twice: first when they left Clark alone and then again didn't go back to check on him.

He said they will be asking the attorney general about "negligent hiking" and possible criminal charges.

"They should have been better prepared in terms of equipment and clothing and never should have left him alone," he said. "I don't know his physical shape, but he's 80 years old."

This incident came amid the deaths of two other hikers in New Hampshire last week. 63-year-old Sandra Lee died of an unknown medical condition while hiking on Thursday. She was pronounced dead at the hospital. William Whittenaur, 69, died Friday after experiencing a heart attack on a trail leading to Mt. Cabot.
