SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -

Firefighters with Spokane Valley were called out to a technical rescue Tuesday evening near north Pines Road & Mirabeau Parkway. 

Firefighters tell KHQ that a man and a woman in their 20's were hiking in the area when the woman fell about 20 down a bank. The man attempted to rescue her himself, but also ended up falling. Firefighters were able to use the GPS from the man's phone to locate them before dark. Once they found the two, they were able to get them up without incident. 

The woman suffered fractures to her arm and leg, as well as some facial injuries. The man ended up with a fractured wrist.
