AMRT responded to a call for a hiker stuck on a cliff near the first waterfall in Eaton Canyon. Once on scene, rescuers found a 25 year-old male more than 200 feet above canyon bottom. A crew was dispatched to a location above the victim, where a system was set up and a rescuer was lowered down to his position. Once safely secured in the rescue harness, the rescuer and victim were lowered to the canyon bottom.
In all, the operation took 5 hours and utilized 14 rescuers from both Altadena and Sierra Madre mountain rescue teams.
The hiker, a resident of Los Angeles, was uninjured and transported to his vehicle.
