FEATHER FALLS, Calif. - Butte County Search and Rescue and the CAL FIRE Butte Unit worked together to rescue a hiker that found himself stranded on the Feather Falls trail Saturday.

First responders got a call just before 2:00 in the afternoon saying that a man in his 60s had started out on a hike, but the heat got to him so he could not make it back down the trail.

The Butte County  Sheriff's Office brought in their helicopter to help with the search.

The hiker was flown to Enloe Medical Center by helicopter to be checked out.
