September 02, 2013

A rescue helicopter team had to be called out Sunday to get a 40-year-old woman off a mountain in Scottsdale. Captain Danny Ables of the Scottsdale Fire Department said the woman lost her way while hiking the Gateway Trailhead Mountains in the Scottsdale Preserve.

“They hoisted rescuers down to her, was able to packager her up and load her back into the helicopter and bring her back down off the mountain,” Ables said. “She did not have any injury what so ever, other than she was just tired, a little bit overheated.”

Ables said the woman was about seven miles into the preserve when she became disoriented and called for help.
