    Crews rescued a Cowles Mountain hiker with a leg injury Tuesday morning.

    The hiker became stuck on the trail along Mission Trails Regional Park Tuesday morning just before 11 a.m., the Santee Fire Department said.

    A helicopter was called to rescue the hiker, who authorities said lost her footing on one of the rocks.

    She was about a mile up the steep trail.

    Medics determined later that the woman in her 50's had minor injuries.
