Air rescues bring two to safety
INLAND EMPIRE – (INT) – It’s been another weekend of air rescues as hikers and fun-seekers head to the mountains and foothills for some outdoor recreation.
In Riverside County, a woman hiker suffered serious injuries while climbing in an area west of Old Town Temecula known as ‘the watering hole’. A Calfire helicopter crew flew her to a local hospital.
On Sunday, a doctor was lowered from a sheriff’s helicopter to the base of Aztec Falls near Lake Arrowhead where a year-old child and a family member had fallen. Both had been near the top of the 25-foot waterfall when both fell onto a pool at the bottom. The toddler had been underwater, but was breathing and suffered no serious injuries. There was no immediate word on the rescue of the other individual.
