Community: Hiker rescued off steep mountain side in Millard Canyon
At 1:20pm Altadena Mountain Rescue Team was called for a hiker stranded on top of a waterfall in Eaton Canyon, in the Angeles National Forest. Rescue crews were not able to reach the stranded hiker via cellphone and crews started searching Eaton Canyon area. After approximately 20 minutes rescue crews were able to make contact with the hiker and it was determined the hiker was in Millard Canyon. 
The hiker, 44 y/o male residing in Cerritos was on a return hike from a waterfall when he lost sight of the trail and became stranded on a steep hillside approximately 50' off a trail.
Rescue crews set up ropes and lowered a rescuer to the stranded hiker and raise him to safety. The hiker was not injured and was able to hike out on his own. We were able to have the hiker out at 4:00pm before the sun set.
