A woman injured while hiking Cowles Mountain had to be airlifted, in the second rescue at the trail this weekend, according to San Diego Fire-Rescue.
An open-space rescue unit was dispatched at about 11:40 a.m. to the trail head at Golfcrest Drive and Navajo Road in the San Carlos area, SDFD spokeswoman Monica Munoz said.
Emergency crews completed the rescue in about 45 minutes. The 25-year-old woman, whose name was not released, was airlifted off the mountain by the city’s Copter 2 to an awaiting ambulance and taken to Sharp Grossmont hospital in La Mesa as a non-emergency patient, according to Munoz.
The woman’s medical condition was not released. There were no other injuries.
A 69-year-old woman who was overcome with heat exhaustion while hiking had to be airlifted off the same trail Saturday afternoon.
