Tucson Sector Border Patrol agents helped rescue a severely injured hiker in the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument's Arch Canyon, southwest of Tucson.
At 7 p.m. Saturday, the agency received a call from the National Park Service requesting help in finding a U.S. citizen who was lost and possibly injured in the canyon. Agents with the agency's Office of Air and Marine's Yuma Air Branch began searching for the woman, according to a news release from Customs and Border Protection.
At about 8 p.m., the woman was found by agents and park rangers. It was determined the woman needed to be evacuated by helicopter. A Department of Public Safety helicopter was used to take the woman to a Tucson hospital, the release said.
The woman reportedly suffered a broken clavicle, broken ribs and possibly broken ankles in the fall.
