A dramatic rescue for a hiker injured in Albuquerque’s foothills was caught on camera.
The Bernalillo County Fire Department says Saturday afternoon, a 58-year-old woman hiking the Pino trail near the Elena Gallegos Picnic Area sprained her ankle.
She was about 2 miles up the trail.
First responders decided to airlift her out of the area with the help of the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office helicopter.
A paramedic was waiting at the landing zone to treat the woman before taking her to a hospital.
