As the weather gets warmer, many New Mexican have plans to hit the trails. But officials say an incident on Saturday is a reminder to play it safe.
Albuquerque police officer Simon Drobik said a man in his late 50s called for help after hiking at the Copper Trailhead around noon. The man was overheated.
Rescuers were able to get him down on a gurney.
Officers say it's important to stay hydrated when hiking and urge people to bring extra water and dress in layers.
