TUCSON, Ariz. — Crews rescued a hiker in Catalina State Park Thursday afternoon.

Golder Ranch Fire District says the hiker became exhausted about a mile and a half from the parking lot, but was in stable condition.

At around 4:30 p.m., GRFD said the hiker was brought safely down to the parking lot and refused transport to the hospital.

Officials are reminding those enjoying Arizona's warming weather to remember to bring enough water before heading out on a hike or other physical activity.
