Search crews have rescued an 18-year-old woman who had been missing for days in a Southern California forest.

Orange County sheriff’s Lt. Jason Park says Kyndall Jack was rescued by a helicopter but he has no word on her condition.

Park says a rescuer suffered a head injury and is also being airlifted to a hospital.

Jack had been missing since Sunday after setting out on a hike with 19-year-old companion Nicolas Cendoya, who made a 911 call for help that night. He was found in very serious condition from dehydration Wednesday night.

Hospital officials say he’s doing better Thursday but his condition is still serious.
