Hikers stranded since Sunday rescued in storm-drenched San Gabriel Mountains
Los Angeles County rescuers located four adults early Thursday morning who had been stranded in the San Gabriel Mountains since Sunday.
The hikers had taken refuge during the heavy rains this week and were finally reached after the worst of the storms had moved out.
The hikers were in the Heaton Flats area above Glendora, according to the Sheriff's Department. The hikers are Orange County residents ranging in age from 23 to 34. Search teams and two helicopters located them.
