When you hike, you have to be very careful of your surroundings. It’s necessary to consider your environment and what type of dangers can possibly be around. And in the case of just the other day, you really would want to steer clear of fires. Just like the four hikers who had thankfully been saved from fires.
What exactly happened to these hikers?
Three separate incidents had occurred off the South Mountain and Phoenix Mountain Preserve, just a couple days ago. For instance, two hikers who got lost off of South Mountain called 9-1-1 when they “lost their bearing.”
Emergency crews arriving to the scene had utilized the signals from the hikers’ cell phone GPS capacities. Firefighters would walk the hikers right home, uninjured, thankfully.
A third hiker—a woman—was rescued on the Mormon Trail upon South Mountain after becoming overheated while calling 9-1-1.
This woman had been dehydrated enough to only move by way of being lowered down the mountain with a big wheel.
Finally, the firefighters saved a 66-year-old man right off 40th Street Trail Head at Phoenix Mountain Preserve.
