The rescue of a 74-year-old woman hiker, who injured herself while hiking at the Phoenix mountain, Arizona turned scary when the stretcher, which she was being pulled up in, started spinning at a rapid speed. Rescuers were able to get to the woman in time, airlifting her off into a stretcher hoisted onto a helicopter.
The Phoenix fire captain said the woman received medications to treat dizziness and nausea from the spinning, but wasn't harmed otherwise.
When the helicopter crews train for the basket to spin, Apolinar said it happens so infrequently that they must induce the basket to start spinning.

The circling motion occurs as the basket nears a helicopter and interacts like a windmill, according to Phoenix Police Air Support chief pilot Paul Apolinar. After she was aloft in the Stokes basket, a line normally would have been attached to stop any spinning.
Dubnow said the injured hiker is in stable condition and "suffered no ill effect from that spin, other than being a little bit dizzy".
The Phoenix Fire Department chose to rescue the woman using a helicopter after assessing the situation. "In that time, we know of [a similar situation] happening twice".
"It's not something that's inherent to the basket or inherent to the bag", he said. Here's hoping her body (and her heart) is OK.
"It's not something that happens very often, but sometimes it just does".
