A young woman is fighting for her life after falling while hiking on the Echo Canyon Trail in Phoenix. Phoenix Fire Captain Reda Bigler says the woman, in her late teens or early 20’s, was found unconscious by their Technical Rescue team. They carried her out and she was then transported to a local trauma center, where she is listed in critical condition.

Bigler says the woman, and another person, were in an area used by rock climbers and rappelling and, while not knowing what the pair was doing, she warns that it is not a place for novice climbers to be.
