Teenagers rescued from Garden of the Gods after getting lost

Posted: Updated:
SALINE COUNTY, IL -

Two teenagers were rescued from the Garden of the Gods after getting lost in the woods Tuesday night.

The pair from Indiana had been hiking on the northwest side of the Garden of the Gods and entered a creek.

They then became disoriented and were unable to return to the trail.

The teens called 911, and telecommunicators were able to guide the hikers and the rescuers toward each other.

Saline County Sheriff Keith Brown says all visitors to the Garden of the Gods area should wear appropriate clothes and shoe, bring water, and a fully charged cell phone. They should also let someone know where they are going and when they should be returning.
