Hikers Rescued After Being Stranded By High Water

Authorities say dozens of hikers were rescued after being stranded by high water from heavy rains in an Arizona canyon.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says 40-to-50 adults and children were stranded Saturday (26) throughout a Tucson-area canyon when waters rushed down mountainsides.  The rescue effort involved teams on the ground and in a helicopter. 

The first group of hikers was led out of Bear Canyon in the Catalina Mountains just after 5pm and the last group about three hours later.  No major injuries were reported.
