Arizona firefighters rescue 25 people, including infant, during flooding in Bear Canyon

The rescue happened at Bear Canyon, located in the Sabino Canyon recreation area of the Coronado National Forest, the Tucson Fire Department said.

The department’s technical rescue team assisted U.S Forest Service and Pima County Search and Rescue crews in the rescue of the 21 adults, three children and infant trapped on the other side of a flooded low water crossing.

Crews determined that a ladder rescue was the best option and were able to lower the ladder on Ladder 7 across the fast-moving water, officials said.
