Chelan County Sheriff Brian Burnett said Sunday that a woman injured her leg while navigating a rocky portion of a trail near Lake Viviane on Saturday. The hiker was injured more than 10 miles away from the trailhead, so other hikers in the area assisted her while waiting for help.
The sheriff's office said search and rescue coordinators received helicopter support from the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office.
The 43-year-old hiker was airlifted away from the trail Saturday afternoon and eventually transported to a hospital in Leavenworth for treatment. Authorities say she was in fair condition.
