Spring break trip turns into an adventure when hikers lose the trail.
The 37 students who got lost in Kentucky woods during a hike on their spring break trip have been found, the Associate Press (AP) reported.
The students were in Kentucky participating in a Habitat for Humanity spring break program. They were hiking in a state nature preserve near Whitesburg, Ky., when they got disoriented as the sun set and left the path.
The search and rescue took over 8 hours. The students were located and lead off the mountain by around 3:30 a.m Friday, Mayking Volunteer Fire Chief Tony Fugate told the AP.
None of the students were seriously injured, most were just “tired and cold,” Fugate told the AP. Temperatures dropped into the 20s overnight in the region, according to the National Weather Forecast.
