      On Friday, June 22, at about 5 pm, a hiker slipped while descending the Half Dome cables. A fellow hiker dropped a handheld radio on the cables above him, and the hiker instinctively reached for the falling radio, losing his handhold on the cables. The hiker slid a short distance on his back away from the cables and was able to stop by grabbing a natural feature. The hiker waited precariously to be rescued by NPS rangers. During the time it took rangers to arrive on scene, other hikers on the cables dismantled a portion of the cables in order to help the fallen hiker to safety.
