A teen who suffered "medical concerns" while hiking Piestewa Peak Sunday was rescued on a trail near the summit.

The Phoenix Fire Department was notified at about 4:25 p.m. that a teen was in trouble at 2701 E. Squaw Peak Dr.

First responders found the hiker, who was then airlifted off the mountain. Fire officials said it was the "most efficient way to get the patient down and into an awaiting fire rescue ambulance."  

The teen's condition is not known.
