Two 17-Year-Olds Rescued After Being Stranded on a Cliff

Posted: Updated:

Two 17-year-old males were rescued by Lake County Search and Rescue early Friday morning after the two boys were stranded on a cliff during a hike.

The boys had gone hiking in the Mission Mountains near McDonald Lake during the day on Thursday and their parents contacted Lake County Dispatch that evening concerned they had not returned.

The youths were able to make a cell phone call for help as well, once they realized they could not make it out on their own.

Rescue efforts were hindered by the steep terrain and limited visibility at night.
