On Sunday, a Pima County Sheriff's Department helicopter crew rescued a mother and son who had been hiking in the Catalina Mountains when they became lost and dehydrated.

The crew found the two hikers at the top of Romero Pass. A rescue deputy was lowered to assess the two and helped get them hoisted up to the helicopter. They were flown to Catalina State Park where medical personnel were waiting for them.

The video, courtesy of the Pima County Sheriff's Department, shows the rescue.
