SAN DIEGO - A woman apparently suffering from heat exhaustion was airlifted from a hiking trail near Lake Hodges and driven to a hospital for treatment on Saturday.
"A call came in at 9:35 a.m. of possible heat exhaustion, and a rescue crew with a helicopter was assigned and the helicopter found her," a San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said. "They landed and determined it would be best to airlift her rather than carry her out."
The dispatcher said the 45-year-old victim was airlifted and then put in an ambulance and driven to Pomerado Hospital.
