Two Lost Hikers Rescued from Palm Springs

Two lost hikers were rescued from the mountains west of O’Donnell Golf Course late last month. According to the Palm Springs Police Department, the hikers called for help from a cell phone at 11:44 p.m.

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department sent a helicopter with a member of the Palm Springs Mounted Search and Rescue team to rescue the hikers. The lost hikers were airlifted off the mountain at 3:30 a.m. the next day. Neither sustained any injuries from the ordeal.

Police say the two hikers were visiting the area from out of town. With temperatures decreasing, more hikers will be taking to the mountains, increasing the likelihood of rescues. If you plan to hike the desert trails, read over our 8 rules for hiking safely.

“Fortunately these hikers were prepared for the worst by bringing along supplies and cell phones. This incident might otherwise have ended up much worse,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
