Woman doing OK following nightmare chopper rescue

Phoenix (CNN) – Check out the video above of a rescue in Phoenix on Tuesday.

A 74-year-old woman was hurt during a hike at Piestwa Peak.

A chopper was brought in to get her out.

When she was loaded into the stokes basket, it started to spin – fast.

The chief pilot for the police department said a line attached to the basket is supposed to keep it from spinning, but that obviously did not work in this case.

The woman was dizzy and nauseous following the rescue but was not hurt any further.
