PHOENIX (AP) -- Firefighters have rescued a man who developed a medical condition while hiking in Phoenix near Piestewa Peak.
 
The Phoenix Fire Department says rescue crews were called around 9:30 a.m. Sunday to a hiking trail near 40th Street and Shea to assist a man in his 60s.
 
Capt. Ruben Saavedra says Phoenix park rangers, paramedics and a rescue team coordinated efforts to extricate the man off the trail.
 
Firefighters used a big wheel operation to bring the man down safely and then transfer him to a 4x4 park ranger truck.
 
Saavedra says he was taken to a hospital for further examination.
