Firefighters were dispatched today to the Bump and Grind trail in Rancho Mirage to attend to an ailing hiker.

Firefighters were contacted at 8:45 a.m. to assist the woman, whose name was not released, Riverside County Fire Department spokeswoman Melody Hendrickson said.

Emergency workers hiked down the trail with her, and she was transported to a local hospital for treatment of weakness and apparent dehydration, Hendrickson said.

I hope that we billl for EMT's services that we so gracioulsy pay for, as a result of some idiot forgetting or just not bringing water on a climb.

I agree, Leo. Every time we turn around it seems that someone has to be recued from this trail. People who hike...pay attention and hike smart or don't even start!
