BEND, Ore. (AP) - A search and rescue team including a couple of horses rode to the rescue of an injured hiker on the Pacific Coast Trail in Oregon.

The Deschutes County sheriff’s office says a man from Sisters texted for help Sunday saying that his 65-year-old wife was injured and unable to move from their location near South Mattheu Lake.

The search and rescue team including the two horses arrived Sunday afternoon and determined the woman needed an airlift. She was picked up and flown to St. Charles hospital in Bend.
