Fifteen members of a church group who became lost during a hike in the mountains outside Los Angeles over the weekend were spotted from the air on Monday and were being rescued by helicopter, a county sheriff’s spokesman said.
The hikers, who range in age from 14 to 36 years old, became lost on Sunday while hiking to a waterfall in the San Gabriel Mountains near Pasadena, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Johnie Jones said.
Some two dozen sheriff’s deputies searched overnight, but were unable to find the church troop in the darkness, despite coming across family members who had received text messages from them reading: “Help.”
Jones said the hikers were glimpsed in the forest at about 9:30 on Monday morning by a sheriff’s helicopter crew and did not appear to have suffered any major injuries.
“They were all found together by our air unit and one of our airships lowered a medic down to them,” Jones said. “The medic is assessing their medical needs taking them out one at a time to a safe location.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
