Video: Helicopter team rescues hiker on rock face

The Snohomish County Helicopter Rescue Team helped a hiker who had become stuck on a steep rock face above Melakwa Lake on Monday.

The hiker was worried he wasn't going to be able to hang on until ground teams were able to reach him. The helicopter crew was able to lift him out.

Check out this video, which gives a rather amazing perspective on the work the Helicopter Rescue Team does.
