More Information Released on Gorge Rescue
They say one of the hikers got separated from the group and was found at about 3:30 a.m. and brought out safely. The other four were stuck on a ledge about 30 feet above the bottom of the gorge. Because of hazardous conditions, rescue personnel had to wait until daylight to attempt to get them out. At around 8:15 a.m. the four were brought out safely.
No one was hurt. Two of the hikers are from Israel; one from Houston; one from St. Louis; and one from Woodmere, New York. Three are 17 years old; two are 18.
