A 76-year-old man collapsed and died Saturday morning while hiking with his wife and a group of friends on the Limekiln Canyon trail north of Porter Ranch.

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics, some of whom were flown there by helicopter, worked for 20 minutes trying to revive the hiker, department spokesman Brian Humphrey said. The man, who was not identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The department received the call at 8:36 a.m.
