PHOENIX -- Rescue crews had to air-lift a 55-year-old man off Camelback Mountain Monday morning after the man blew out his knew at the top of the trail.

Rescuers hiked up the mountain to stabilize the man, who was not able to put any weight on his injured leg. They opted to bring in the helicopter, which made the rescue go relatively quickly.

Bruce Haffner talked to the pilot who flew the injured man down.
