Group of 15 Found After Being Lost in Woods for an Hour
Monticello - A group of two adults and 13 children who got lost while hiking in the woods in Monticello were found after the husband of one of them issued a distress call.
The group left Sunday afternoon for an enjoyable trek through a trail in Thompson Park and couldn’t find their way out . One of the husbands contacted Chaverim of Brooklyn and the Catskills Hatzolah.
The organizations called the Parks and Fire departments, whose staff responded to the call and discovered the lost group about ten minutes later.
The group, which consisted of two adults and thirteen children aged 2 to 18, had been lost for about an hour. They were brought back from the woods by a fleet of ATVs and were all unhurt.
