Two Hikers Rescued from Bump and Grind Trail

CalFire assists two hikers on hike early Thursday

Two hikers have been taken to an area hospital with minor injuries after an early morning hike on the Bump and Grind trail went wrong.

According to fire department spokesperson Jody Hagemann, the hikers made a 911 call at 6:19 a.m. complaining that one hiker was having an allergy attack, while another was suffering from dehydration.

The unnamed hikers, one mile up the hilly trail, were originally planned to be rescued by helicopter, but according to Hagemann, both walked down the trail assisted by fire fighters.

Experienced Hikers no doubt. The Coachella Valley and surroundine hillside trails are in an arid region subject to extreme high temperatures during the "Summer months". Get it? Please stop putting our Emergency Service Personel @ risk because of your ignorance and/or stupidity!

Suffering from dehydration @ 6:19 am and only one mile into the trail? You have to be kidding me! I feel they should be charged for the emergency services rendered!
