Sheriff’s helicopter plucks Garden Grove hiker who made a wrong turn off Mount Baldy

A 26-year-old Garden Grove man used his cell phone to call for help after he made a wrong turn off a Mount Baldy trail Monday afternoon, Aug. 14, according a San Bernardino Sheriff’s news release.

High winds prevented a sheriff’s aviation division helicopter from picking up Steven Le due to high winds.

Members of the West Valley Search and Rescue team were activated, and found poor lighting and extremely difficult terrain prevented them from hiking Le out so they spent the night in Goode Canyon.

Then Tuesday morning, the sheriff’s rescue helicopter safely hoisted Le and the team members off the mountain.
