Injured hiker rescued from Camel's Hump

Posted: Updated:

It took rescuers nearly nine hours to get an injured hiker off Camel's Hump.

The Waterbury Backcountry Rescue Team was called at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday after a woman slipped and hurt her ankle.

Because of the tough terrain, many other agencies were called in for backup.

Once they reached her, rescuers say it took about three and a half hours to bring her off the mountain.

It's the 11th rescue for that group so far this year.
