Helicopter rescue teams are highly trained and thankfully, the team in Phoenix took quick corrective action to prevent a much worse situation. The well-trained rescuers put their back up emergency plans into place and the situation had a happy ending, according to the news station's report. The woman hiker that suffered the ride of her life is reportedly doing fine.
The important take away is how dangerous a rescue mission like this can become.
Rescuers risk their lives and safety so it’s important to listen and take the advice of Fish and Game officials when you head out to hike.
