Woman hiker rescued after fall on Tucson trailhead

TUCSON, Ariz. — Authorities say a woman has been rescued after falling on
a hike at the Gates Pass trailhead in Tucson.

The name of the 31-year-old woman wasn’t immediately released Wednesday
afternoon, but Northwest Fire/Rescue District officials say she is from out of
town.

They say the woman suffered a leg injury when she fell about a mile up the
trailhead.

She was hiking with another woman and they had a cellphone, which they used to
call for help.

Northwest officials say it took about two hours to get the injured woman off
the trailhead.

They say she was transported in stable condition to a Tucson hospital for
treatment of her injuries.
