A Glenview dad and his 5-year-old son were rescued by helicopter from an Arizona mountain after getting lost and ending up in rocky, treacherous terrain, according to an article in TribLocal.
The duo, whose names are not being released, were hiking on Cambelback Mountain near Phoenix Thursday when they got lost in a steep section with lots of dangerous ledges, the article says. The dad called 911 and they were eventually put in harnesses and lifted off the mountain.
The father was hoisted up first and then a firefighter got in an harness with the boy, who was described as “very brave” and lifted him to safety.
