TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A 19-year-old man is OK after being rescued from a popular hiking spot in southern Arizona on Monday afternoon, May 29, according to rescue officials.

The Southern Arizona Rescue Association said the man was hiking at Seven Falls when he ran out of water.

Rescue members gave the hiker water and escorted him out. The man did not need to be taken to the hospital.

SARA officials said the incident should serve as a reminder to everyone to be prepared, especially this time of the year in southern Arizona.

When hiking, SARA recommends everyone should:

  • Carry plenty of water
  • Wear sturdy shoes
  • Charge your cell phone
  • Carry a flashlight, snacks, sports drinks, sun protection and first-aid kit
  • Tell someone where you are going and how long you plan on being gone

SARA said they responded to more than 140 calls last year and four people died of heat stroke while a rescue was in progress.
