A CHP helicopter had to airlift a Meyers woman and her dog off Mount Tallac on Sunday July 28, 2013.
Janet Field called El Dorado County sheriff’s deputies from the top of the South Shore peak about 3pm July 28 to alert them she could not make it down because her dog, Samson, had raw pads and could not walk any farther.
Deputies’ instructions on how to bandage the dog’s paws did not work. And the dog was too big be carried out by its owner.
Field was not in a position to stay the night or hike out in the dark because of the light clothing she was wearing and the lack of food and water.
At 6pm the California Highway Patrol helicopter was able to get Field and her dog off the mountain.
