Crews rescue three female hikers from Cedar Creek Falls trail
Three female hikers suffering from heat-related symptoms were rescued from the Cedar Creek Falls trail around 1:30 p.m. Monday, according to officials.
San Diego County Sheriff’s Department sent two helicopters to hoist the hikers from the trail and bring them to a landing area near Ramona Fire Station 81 on San Vicente Road.
The hikers were able to walk to the waiting ambulance where they were evaluated, treated and released, said a fire official. They declined to go to the hospital.
An 11-year-old was also involved, according to reports, but an emergency responder said the child was able to hike out. He had no further information.
