Hiker Home Safe
Hiker Eric Tucker is back with his family, after walking out of the Emigrant Wilderness on his own last
evening. The 28 year old hiker spent a week recovering from ankle injuries after falling about 40 feet during his hike in the Kennedy Meadows
Sheriff´s deputies had decided to call off the search because of rough weather in the area. Tucker was released from Tuolumne General Hospital
after treatment for a fractured ankle.
