A 30-year-old man got a bird's-eye view of the Catalina Mountains Saturday when he had to be rescued while hiking.

The man became dehydrated while hiking in Sabino Canyon and had to be airlifted out, Deputy Tom Peine, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff’s Department, posted on Facebook. That meant dangling from a U.S. Customs Air & Marine Blackhawk helicopter.
