A dramatic, and risky, rescue saved a 64 year old hiker in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. A Fresno County Sheriff Deputy, David Rippe, climbed 300 feet up a steep slope to secure the man on a 6 to 7 inch ledge he was perched on.

The hiker had chosen a dangerous route down after becoming separated from his group. Search and rescue found him after he was missing nearly 2 days.
