Two Teens Rescued From Mount McKay

Two 19 year old girls are now off of Mount McKay after getting stuck on the side of the mountain Tuesday afternoon. 

Platoon Chief Shawn Merrifield tells us they get these calls often. 

"We do come here a couple of times a year for people who are stuck on the mountain.  It seems they are often stuck in the shale, sometimes if they try and climb down they become stuck because they realize they are going to slide and get stuck and possibly hurt themselves." 

Crews spent around two hours trying to get the girls down the mountain. (Photo by Caroline Redston)
