TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A 69-year-old woman who fell into a canyon near Tucson was rescued after being spotted by a man scouting for locations to hunt deer.
The Pima County Sheriff's Office says the woman was located after a man returned to Box Canyon on Sunday, a day after he first noticed a parked car there.
The man called authorities after hearing calls for help and seeing the woman approximately 100 feet below.
The sheriff's search and rescue unit and the Southern Arizona Rescue Association responded and found the injured woman.
She was transported to a hospital after a helicopter lifted her out of the canyon.
The woman's identity was not released.
