Hiker Rescued in the North Bay

SONOMA COUNTY (KRON) — A Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office helicopter rescued a stranded hiker Thursday afternoon.

Just after 1 p.m., the sheriff’s office was called about a 69-year-old woman who was hurt while hiking near the Mount Hood Train and Summer Trail.

The helicopter arrived about 20 minutes later, and was able to land just about 200 yards from the injured hiker.

The woman had only minor injuries, but wasn’t able to walk out of the park by herself.

The helicopter took the woman to an ambulance.

From there, she was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries.
