BORREGO SPRINGS (CNS) - A hiker was recuperating from severe dehydration Friday after being rescued from Anza-Borrego State Park, authorities said.
A woman called 911 about 10 p.m. Thursday to report that her husband and a friend were hiking off Rockhouse Trail in Anza-Borrego State Park and that her husband's friend was in need of immediate medical attention, according to San Diego County sheriff's Sgt. Tom Evans.
The woman was not with the hikers but had received a satellite phone call from her husband, Evans said.
Twenty-seven minutes after the 911 call was placed, deputies found the hikers and took the dehydrated friend to a hospital via air ambulance.
According to Evans, the caller's husband left the area in his own vehicle in good condition.
Conditions in the state park Thursday were very dry, with slight winds and temperatures up to 95 degrees.
