PHOENIX – A 14-year-old boy was flown off South Mountain after suffering a leg injury while hiking, Phoenix fire officials said on Nov. 27.
Fire crews said they were called to Holbert Trailhead at around 10:45 Saturday morning to help the young hiker.
A splint was placed on one of the teen’s legs, and he was eventually flown off the mountain onto an ambulance in a nearby parking lot.
“The young man was then transported in stable condition via Rescue 57 to a local pediatric emergency room for further evaluation,” officials said.
No other injuries were reported.
