Officials at first had called in a fire department helicopter to assist with an evacuation, but that was canceled at 2:46 p.m..

“We’ll be able to walk the patient out,” said Bennett.

A number of emergency response vehicles were parked at the base of Towsley Canyon while paramedics began their walk up to rendezvous with the hiker.
