The team was called out to back up helicopter Rescue 9 with the rescue of two women hikers on the Pacific Crest Trail. They had called that they had run out of water and one of them was unconscious. we were called out in case Rescue 9 had trouble due to the terrain. As we responded we got the call that Rescue 9 had air lifted both women and were transporting them to a waiting ambulance. Unfortunately, one of them succumbed to the extreme heat. Our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the one that did not make it.
