PARADISE VALLEY, AZ - It took rescue crews more than 2 hours to find and help down a hiker trapped at the edge of a cliff on Camelback Mountain Friday afternoon.
According to Phoenix Fire Department Spokesperson Alex Rangel, the man was stuck about 300 feet up from the main Echo Canyon Trail off McDonald Drive, just east of Tatum Blvd.
It's unclear how the hiker got off the main trail and onto the precipice.
Rangel said the rescue was difficult because of rough terrain and the remote location of the hiker.
The condition of that hiker remains unknown at this point, however video showed him moving around right before the rescue.
