Camelback Claims More Victims

Two men in their late 20s were rescued from the Echo Canyon trail Sunday 7/8/2012.

Phoenix Fire rescued them after they had made it 3 quarters of the way up but were unable to continue. The two guys ran out of water and other generous hikers dialed 911 and stayed with them until helped arrived.

It is a shame that this happens so often, especially since a $10K rescue was required. A little more mental toughness and/or preparation could have solved this problem. Check out the ABC 15 video below for more information.
