Treacherous snow and ice cover higher mountain trails
MOUNT SAN GORGONIO ?(INT) ?Four hikers are safe after their rescue from the slippery, ice and snow-covered peaks in the San Bernardino Mountains.

A San Diego couple was hoisted aboard a sheriff’s rescue helicopter Monday after one was injured in a 150-foot fall from an icy trail on Mt. San Gorgonio. A tree stopped David Westberg’s 150 foot slide. He and Jennifer Graham were airlifted to safety.

Earlier Sunday, two other injured hikers were rescued from two of the Inland Empire’s highest peaks. Both had fallen in areas of snow and ice on San Bernardino Peak and near Mt. Baldy.

Sheriff’s helicopters brought Jerome King, 50, of Redlands and Talor James, 28, of La Habra to safety.

Authorities warn that the local mountain trails and ice chutes are treacherous at the higher elevations in the wake of the recent storms.
