PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Four people were rescued Saturday morning in separate incidents at two Phoenix-area mountain trails.

All of the injured, including one child, are expected to be OK.

There were three rescues on Camelback Mountain. Firefighters said a 53-year-old woman suffered an ankle injury. Crews gave her pain medications and walked her down the trail using a special rescue basket.

A 63-year-old man suffered heat-related issues. Crews gave him an IV and helped him down safely. 

In a third incident, a child twisted his knee. His father carried him down the mountainside, where Phoenix fire crews checked him over. 

The other rescue occurred on Piestewa Peak. A 53-year-old woman, who had not hiked the mountain in a while, had a seizure. Crews helped her down and evaluated her in an EMS vehicle. By that time she felt much better, and was able to drive herself home.
