PLACER COUNTY, Calif.- The Placer County Sheriff's office has released new details about a hiker rescue in Gold Run last week.
Crews say the woman, who is in her 60s, lost track of the path due to the weather conditions last week.
The women spent about 24-hours out in the stormy weather and if it was not for the GPS device she had, crews say she would not have made it out alive.
Volunteers found the woman soaking wet and so cold that she could not talk or move.
She was hospitalized for hypothermia and frostbite but is expected to be OK.
