Fresno County sheriff’s deputies rescued a 28-year-old hiker who was found injured Saturday at Fish Creek Campground near the Pacific Crest Trail in northeast Fresno County, Lt. Robert Salazar said.
About 6 p.m., Lt. Joe Smith said, two male hikers found an injured woman, then used a SPOT activation device to alert Cal OES and provide GPS coordinates.
The hiker was recovered and taken to Community Regional Medical Center at around 2 a.m. Sunday.
The woman was injured after falling while rock climbing. Smith said she was in stable condition, but had a compound fracture on a lower leg and a fractured ankle on the other.
