A man was rescued Friday from the 7 Falls Trail after feeling dehydrated.

He was hiking near the end of Tunnel Trail when he called 911 for help just after 12:30 p.m.

An air rescue team found the hiker sitting in a shaded area. The victim was hoisted up into the helicopter.

The helicopter flew to the Santa Barbara Airport where he was then transported via ambulance to the hospital.
