Sad to hear, a hiker died near Camelback mountain.

Phoenix police and fire crews recovered the body of a 59-year-old man who collapsed and died while hiking on Camelback Mountain Thursday afternoon, police said.

The man who is from out of state, was hiking with his wife near the top of the Echo Canyon area on the northwest side of the mountain near the 5700 block of Lincoln Drive about 1:15 p.m. when he told his wife he felt feint and fell to the ground, said Phoenix police Officer John Howard.

My condolences to his friends and family.
