A group of eight women filming a religious reality TV show called Bad Girls Gone God had to be rescued off an Arizona mountain in the sweltering heat and said police response was a divine intervention. 

Phoenix firefighters had to assist the group of women down Camelback Mountain in 100-degree heat after they experienced heat exhaustion symptoms while filming on Thursday. 

The women started their hike around 7am and were armed with only one water bottle each and roughly four cell phones. The woman reported feeling dizzy and lightheaded when another group of hikers called 911 for them. 

‘We’re thinking if they didn’t call – I don’t know what would’ve happened, but we wouldn’t have made it, maybe,’ Tatiana Robinson told Fox 10. ‘I started getting really, really dizzy, and after a while, I just said: “No, I can’t do this.”‘

Another religious hiker Kristen Livingston also told the outlet she had an ‘episode’ in her car after the rescue effort – where many were carried down the mountain on stretchers and some were flown down in a helicopter. 

‘I barely made it down. I had an episode in the car where I almost passed out. It was a lot,’ she told Fox 10. 

The group was filming a reality TV show where they test their physical abilities and spirituality, but it seemed God had other plans for them, as three – who are aged 24, 42, and 50, were taken to the hospital. 

The hikers reportedly told firefighters they didn’t do their research and didn’t get the forewarning about the dangerous temperatures and the strenuous trail. 

‘God was definitely with us,’ Robinson said. 

The women were from all over the country, including Alabama, Tennessee, and California.

Camelback Mountain is a popular spot in Phoenix and the peak hits 1,280 feet which has been described as a ‘challenging climb.’ 

Rescue efforts are commonplace on the trails, according to the New York Post. Oftentimes the trail is closed when on hot days. It is unclear why the trail remained open on Thursday. 

Temperatures near the peak can reach even higher and can reach up to 150 degrees, according to a Facebook group.
