CORONA - Firefighters came to the aid on Tuesday, July 30 of two hikers who fell ill after becoming dehydrated while traversing a trail in the Cleveland National Forest south of Corona.

The pair, who were not publicly identified, called 911 about 12:25 p.m., as they were hiking the Skyline Drive Trail, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

The victims reported feeling faint and lethargic after they apparently ran out of water.

Firefighters parked their trucks near the intersection of Burrero Way and Skyline Drive, then hiked into the forest to find the stranded hikers.

After locating them and supplying them with liquids, a crew escorted the hikers out of the preserve and back to their vehicle, according to reports from the scene. It was unclear whether the hikers intended to seek medical treatment.
