YUMA, Ariz. -- A helicopter from the Marine Corps air station at Yuma rescued a stranded hiker who climbed a rock structure in the Castle Dome Mountains but couldn't make it back down.
The Yuma Sun reported that an airman rappelled down to the stranded 22-year-old.
Both were then lifted by the helicopter and flown to an area near the base of the rock structure.
A Marine Corps spokeswoman said the hiker was uninjured but showed symptoms of heat exhaustion when the rescue was performed Saturday.
The hiker was among six people out hiking.
