PHOENIX (AP) - A woman has been rescued after being stranded since Wednesday morning on a mountain trail in Phoenix’s Papago Park.

Phoenix Fire Department officials say the woman in her 30s says she was hiking and got stuck on a 100-foot cliff.

Other hikers noticed her and called 911.

Fire units from Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tempe deployed technical rescue teams to reach her.

They rappelled using ropes and gear and performed a rescue pick-off.

Crews reached the hiker about 9:30 a.m. Thursday and found she wasn’t injured.

After being evaluated, the woman was given a ride home.

The name and age of the woman wasn’t immediately released by authorities.
