Dramatic video has captured the helicopter rescue of a hiking couple that ran out of water in Joshua Tree amid California’s triple-digit heat wave.

A man called 911 from an area known as Painted Canyon on June 9 and reported that his girlfriend was weak and dehydrated, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office wrote on a social media post

The department’s Rescue 9 helicopter was dispatched to the hikers’ location, and rescuers spotted the couple huddled in a dry creek bed. The man could be seen attempting to shield the woman’s body from the blistering heat and wind.

The department told SFGATE that the man was driven in an ambulance to get medical attention.
