At about noon Saturday, Oct. 1, Cal Fire/Riverside County firefighters responded to the report of an ill hiker in a remote area of the San Jacinto Wilderness at the top of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway.

Cal Fire Copter 301 crew safely transported an adult male from a remote area about 9 miles into the trail to a waiting ambulance at the bottom of the tram.

The patient was evaluated for non-life threatening injuries.
