SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two lost hikers from Colorado were stranded in the mountains near Alpine for about 24 hours, but were airlifted from the area near El Capitan Reservoir Dam Sunday.
San Diego County Sheriff's deputies received a call for possible stranded hikers on the mountain area of the El Capitan Reservoir Dam about 8:29 a.m. When they arrived they heard the hikers, both of them in their mid-20's, yelling for help, Sheriff's Sgt. Scott Enyeart said
Deputies used an ASTREA helicopter to locate and airlift the hikers from the side of the mountain, Enyeart said.
The two men, who were unfamiliar with the area, went hiking Saturday afternoon and quickly became trapped on the side of the mountain, he said.
They were shaken up but not injured despite being stranded overnight.
Both refused any medical attention, Enyeart said.
