At 10:15 AM on Tuesday February 10th a call was received for a hiker missing in Eaton Canyon. Altadena Mountain Rescue Team responded, locating the 27 year old female victim atop a dry waterfall in Coyote Canyon. While trail running in the area, she lost the trail and attempted to backtrack to her original route, eventually finding herself in a position that would require assistance.
AMRT set up position above the victim, employing approximately 600 feet of rope to send a rescuer down to her. Once at her position, she was safely secured into a harness and lowered approximately 150 feet to the canyon bottom. The victim was provided with water and transported to her vehicle located north of the Eaton Canyon Nature Center.
