Two hikers were found clinging onto a tree in the Eaton Canyon area and airlifted to the hospital Friday afternoon.
Deputy Mark Williams with the Altadena Sheriff’s Station said the hikers, a male and female in their early 20s, were hiking near the large waterfall when they slipped and fell.
They were spotted by another hiker clinging onto a tree at around 3:45 p.m., said Williams.
“They were hard to get to, but AIR 5 was able to reach them within 30 minutes and airlift them to Huntington Memorial Hospital,” said Williams.
Williams said one of the hikers complained of neck and back pains, but was expected to recover.
