Firefighters help injured hiker on Cerro San Luis trail

Emergency personnel from Cal Fire and the San Luis Obispo Fire Department helped an injured hiker from off the top of Cerro San Luis Mountain on Wednesday morning.

At about 10:15 a.m., the city fire department received a report of a hiker with an injured leg near the top of the mountain's main trail, a Cal Fire spokeswoman said.

About 12 personnel from both fire agencies responded on foot and found the hiker, who was not suffering any major injuries but needed help down the trail.

In all, three fire engines responded to the base of the mountain. A CHP helicopter was initially requested but was called off.

The hiker did not require ambulance transport to a hospital, the Cal Fire spokeswoman said.
