FOUNTAIN HILLS, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

Crews have rescued two hikers who got stranded on Brown Peak in the Four Peaks area, near Fountain Hills.

The 25-year-old woman and her father were hiking Wednesday when the man had a medical emergency and was not able to hike any further, according to Officer Christopher Hegstrom with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office 

Crews had been working to rescue the pair since Wednesday afternoon.

Rescuers were not able to rescue them by helicopter Wednesday evening due to the wind. However, a medical team was flown to the mountain and spent the night with the pair, bringing them blankets and supplies.

Hegstrom said deputies, with the help of the National Guard's Blackhawk helicopter, were able to get the pair off the mountain Thursday morning.

The man was taken to a local hospital.

The names of the father and daughter have not been released.
