  • Can you spot the stranded hiker? Watch how a CHP helicopter found, rescued him

    A CHP helicopter rescued a 58-year-old hiker who had been stranded in the Salmon Creek area in Monterey County for five days on Monday, November 27, 2017. It's a "perpetual frustration" to actually find the victim in rescue situations, but the hiker did everything right: set up a tent on an exposed hilltop and made large motions to help crews locate him, the CHP said on Facebook.
