A student's hiking trip took a turn for the worst as she was handcuffed and restrained by 35 rescuers after taking too many mushrooms on the top of a mountain and stripping naked.

Bare-cheeked Taylor Powers was rescued from Chautauqua Park in Boulder, Colorado, US, following fisticuffs with her housemates. The University of Colorado Boulder student was "high on mushrooms and in distress", according to the Sheriff of Boulder County's office.
