A Los Angeles Fire Department helicopter hoisted two uninjured hikers to safety Saturday evening after it became too dark to walk near Rustic Creek in Will Rogers State Park in Pacific Palisades.

The situation was reported at 7:32 p.m. in the vicinity west of the 1500 block of Umeo Road, near Amalfi Drive, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department’s Margaret Stewart.

It was too dark for the hikers to walk in the rugged terrain and the decision was made to use the helicopter to hoist the hikers to firefighters on the ground to help them return to their vehicle, Stewart said.
