A 59-year-old woman was sent to the hospital this afternoon after a helicopter rescue on Bishop Peak.

San Luis Obispo City Fire Battalion Chief Neal Berryman says the call came in around 4 p.m. for someone who became light-headed while hiking.

When crews arrived, they found that while the woman was being assisted up some rocks, she accidentally dislocated her shoulder. 

It took about 30 minutes for medics to reach her and from there, a helicopter then flew the hiker back down the mountain. 

The rescue was a collaborative effort between San Luis Obispo Fire. CAL FIRE and CHP.

Fire managers say gusty winds made the rescue efforts more difficult.
