40 LaSalle Hikers Rescued in Kentucky

38 LaSalle University students and three staff members got lost hiking yesterday on Kentucky’s Pine Mountain before being rescued late last night. Stranded for hours, the hikers were eventually tracked down by rescue workers and police, and were brought to a nearby hospital where they were treated for hypothermia, exhaustion and dehydration. One student remains hospitalized. The group was in the area doing volunteer work with a non-profit. [Kentucky.com]
