Hikers Rescued from Lost Coast Trail

A Coast Guard aircrew from Air Station Humboldt Bay, Calif., rescued three hikers stranded near Lost Coast Trail, Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013. According to the hikers, rising tide rendered the trail impassable, and one hiker was swept into the surf while attempting to get to safety. The other hikers managed to pull her out of the surf, but in the process were exposed to the ocean water while the first hiker sustained several gashes to her left hand. The other hikers used duct tape to stop the bleeding while the Coast Guard was en route. The three women used their satellite phone to keep the Coast Guard updated while waiting for rescue.
