While a helicopter attempted an airlift to get her off the mountain, the stretcher began spinning wildly out of control. She she was loaded into the stokes basket, it started to spin fast.

One Facebook user who claimed to be a relative of the injured hiker said the woman understands the rescue team did their best.

Phoenix Police Air Support chief pilot Paul Apolinar said a line which should have prevented the basket from spinning failed to work.

She was dizzy and nauseous after her rescue but had no additional injuries, according to CNN.

"Once we got the forward flight, the spin got to the point where they were safely able to bring the patient up to the aircraft", Geisel said.

The helicopter then landed at a parking lot at the base of Piestewa Peak. During a Phoenix Fire Department news conference on Tuesday-organised partially in response to the online reaction-Phoenix Fire Captain Bobby Dubnow told reporters he spoke to the woman once she was secured to the helicopter after the whirlwind adventure. She had suffered facial and head injuries after a ground-level fall during the hike, which was why first responders began the rescue, officials said.

KNXV-TV's Cliff Castle Chopper recorded as firefighters loaded a 74-year-old woman into a basket in preparation for flying her off Piestwa Peak.

"It's not something that's inherent to the basket or inherent to the bag", he said.

"It's not something that occurs very often, but when we train for it we actually have to go out with weight in the basket and we have to induce it to make the basket spin", he said. Here's hoping her body (and her heart) is OK.
