PHOENIX - Two men are recovering Sunday night after being rescued off of Echo Canyon Trail on Camelback Mountain.
The men, in their late 20s, made it up the trail about three-fourths of the way before they had to call for help. They had water, but ran out and the heat was too much for them to take.
Other hikers stayed with them and called 911 until rescue crews arrived. One man was airlifted because he was cramping and too dehydrated to make it down the mountain. The other man was able to climb down with the help of firefighters.
"Just use common sense, know your abilities, have plenty of water and sun protection. There's no need to put yourself and others at risk. This could have been prevented," said Phoenix Fire spokesman Marc Austin.
Officials said both men are expected to be fine.
