TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a hiker on Mount Lemmon in Tucson has suffered multiple injuries after falling nearly 40 feet.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials say an Air and Marine Operations helicopter crew had to conduct its second rescue mission in two days.

On Monday, a crew rescued a man who became distressed as he hiked on the Pima Canyon trail in the Catalina Mountains about a mile north of the trailhead in a rugged ravine.

Shortly after 2 p.m. Tuesday, border agents from the Tucson Air Branch responded to a report that a 24-year-old woman had taken a serious fall on Mt. Lemmon’s Butterfly Trail.
