Lost Hiker Story Detail

The story in the Rutland Herald gives a little more substance to the story about the 2 lost hikers in Vermont. It is titled "State troopers rescue lost hikers" and was published from staff reports on 7 August 2007.

There we learn that the pair went into the woods after dark, and that the male in the un-named pair "was clinging to a tree to keep from falling down a steep ledge on the Long Trail in Killington." The 19-year-old woman had a cell phone, dialed 911, and effected the rescue of her 18-year-old companion and herself.
