The Department of Public Safety helicopter was dispatched to help rescue two women who fell at Seven Falls in the Catalina Mountains Monday.
According to Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman Dep. Tracy Suitt, a 19-year-old woman hit her head when she slipped and fell more than 20 feet. Suitt said she is conscious but has head lacerations.
Pima County Sheriff's Department officers say the rescue is taking longer than expected, but a search and rescue crew helicopter will airlift her to a local hospital.
Another 19-year-old woman was airlifted to a local hospital after falling 15 feet, also in Sabino Canyon this morning.
