Six hikers rescued Saturday morning

Six hikers who were lost along the Sunset Ridge trail were escorted out in the wee hours of the morning by the Altadena Mountain Rescue team, according to the sheriffs.

Sgt. Debra Herman at the Altadena Sheriff Station says that a 911 call came in from a hiker's cell phone about 2:30 AM this morning (Saturday).  The rescue team and county fire were dispatched, along with a helicopter, and the hikers were located within two hours after the call, Herman said.

Sgt. Herman said that, while there was no information on the official report of the hikers being led out, "we wouldn't have left them there."  None of the two women or four men who were part of the hiking party were injured or required medical attention, Herman said.
