Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “74-year-old hiker spins wildly beneath chopper as she's airlifted to safety in viral video”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A 74-year-old woman who was injured while hiking Arizona's Piestewa Peak Tuesday afternoon was lifted from the mountain by helicopter, during which the basket she was in began spinning out of control.

Video of the rescue — and the woman's wild ride — was captured by several local television news helicopter cameras.

Phoenix Fire Department Capt. Kenny Overton told The Arizona Republic the woman suffered a facial laceration, wrist and hip injuries and possibly a fractured nose while hiking the peak, near 24th Street and Lincoln Drive.

However, there were “no complications” as a result of the rescue stretcher spinning as it dangled from the helicopter.
