News of a successful rescue of a 6 and 7 year old sister and brother that were left on a mountain overnight after they and their dad fell down a steep cliff into a creek bed. The dad had to make a very difficult decision to leave the kids to climb back up the cliff and seek help. Three SAR groups were called out last night and earlier this morning, they managed to make voice contact with the kids and successfully rescue them.

Not really sure why their dad would take his young children that far up the mountain and probably off the main trail. It is a very popular mountain with trail systems and I have been up there many times in years past, but danger can lurk and smack you when least expected.

Too bad Dad did not build a fire or equip his kids with whistles. Things like that make recovery much quicker and smoother.
