A woman in her 40s died on a Scottsdale hiking trail on Sunday night, the police department said.
Scottsdale police and firefighters were called to the Lost Dog Wash Trailhead for reports of someone having a medical emergency. There, they found a woman who crews attempted to save, but she died.
The woman was identified as Raleigh Rosen, an Arizona resident.
"Rosen was hiking with a long-time friend in the late afternoon on Sunday, October 24th. About one and a half miles away from the trailhead, Rosen began having trouble breathing and subsequently lost consciousness," Scottsdale Police said in a statement on Oct. 26.
Rosen's death is believed to be due to medical reasons and no foul play is suspected.

Fire managers are gathering this week in Flagstaff for a first-of-its-kind training in prescribed burns. Officials say the Prescribed Fire Training Exchange, or TREX, is a unique opportunity for fire personnel across the country to learn about prescribed fire, smoke management and wildland-urban interface. Fire managers from nine different agencies will be involved, including the Flagstaff Fire Department and the Summit Fire and Medical District. TREX managers will coordinate with neighboring national forest, parks, fire departments and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality to monitor the smoke impacts of prescribed burns. Several are planned in the coming weeks for the greater Flagstaff area, including Observatory Mesa, the U.S. Naval Observatory and Rogers Lake area.
