Hiker Rescued in Reno After Ankle Injury

Posted: Updated:

A woman is recovering after having to be rescued off of a hiking trail Friday afternoon.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office, REMSA as well as Search and Rescue were all called to the Michael Thompson Trailhead near Mayberry Drive just before 4pm.

Deputies say the woman was hiking when she fell and received a compound fracture to her ankle.

Because of the rough terrain and location of her accident, Search and Rescue had to be called in to help.

The RAVEN helicopter was able to airlift her from the trail and take her to an awaiting ambulance.
