SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A 12-year-old girl suffering from dehydration was rescued from Pinnacle Peak Sunday morning, according to the Scottsdale Fire Department.

Capt. Jim Novotny said a big wheel operation was used to bring the child down the trail, which she was hiking with a parent.

She did not require transportation to a hospital, Novotny said.

He reminded hikers to prehydrate and carry plenty of water.
