A hiker died Monday after getting lost on a trail and running out of water in Cave Creek, Arizona, amid extreme temperatures, according to officials.

The Maricopa County Sheriff's Office received a call for help around 1:30 p.m. local time for possible heat exhaustion on the Spur Cross Trailhead. Upon arrival, rescuers discovered multiple people needed help.

Dr. Evan Dishion, 32, was hiking with a group when they ran out of water and got lost four miles into the trail.

The hikers were rescued via helicopter and flown to safety. Dishion later died at a hospital.

Scottsdale Fire Department Capt. Dave Folio said the group was hiking during the hottest part of the day.

"When we got out on that trail, the temperature on the asphalt alone was reading 127 off our truck. I think it was 109 outside, so it was extreme heat. [The group] should have been off the trail three or four hours ago," Folio said.

Accuweather recorded a high of 107 degrees in Cave Creek on Monday.

The Barrow Neurological Institute, where Dishion recently began his first year as a neurology resident, later released a statement addressing his death.

"We are deeply saddened by the tragic passing of Dr. Evan Dishion. Dr. Dishion was a bright and gifted physician who had recently begun his first year as a neurology resident at Barrow Neurological Institute," the statement read.

"He was a kind and generous person who made it his mission and passion to improve the lives of others. We extend our deepest sympathy and prayers to Dr. Dishion's family, friends, and colleagues during this time of mourning."
