Young hikers hoisted out by helicopter
Late last night, the LA County Fire Department responded to a call in Stevenson Ranch where three hikers were stranded on top of a mountain.
Their shouts were apparently heard by residents in the area, and they were quickly located.
Because of their position, Los Angeles Fire Helicopter #20 was called in to hoist the three young hikers out.
Fire officials describe the hikers as two males and one female. No injuries were sustained.
Stevenson Ranch is an area just west of Interstate 5, and it sits at the edge of mountainous terrain.
