PINAL COUNTY — A 16-year-old died on Saturday while on a Scouts BSA group hike at Picacho Peak Park, according to a spokesperson for the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
The teenager has not been identified by officials.
It is unknown how many people were in the group.
Officials say a member of the group called 911 for help, though it is unclear why.
When rescue crews arrived, the 16-year-old had no water and was unconscious, officials say. It's unclear if the lack of water led to the teen's death or not.
A park ranger who arrived along with members of the Avra Fire Department attempted life-saving measures on the teen; however, he was pronounced dead on the scene.
The Scouts BSA hasn't yet returned a request for comment.
