Rescued Teen Hikers Recovering in California Hospital

| No Comments

Two teens, who became lost and separated on a Southern California trail four days prior to their rescue, are recovering from dehydration and minor injuries, authorities said according to The Christian Science Monitor.

Kyndall Jack, 18, and Nicholas Cendoya, 19, are being treated at two separate hospitals, and are both in stable condition, ABC News said.

Cendoya was found late Wednesday by hikers, ABC news said. When Cendoya was spotted he was disoriented and wearing no shirt and no shoes, authorities said.

Jack, who was found Thursday, was clinging to a cliff and laying in the fetal position, authorities said. "She asked me what year it was. She thought it was the year 2030. She was very confused," L.A. County Sheriff's Reserve Deputy Fred Wenzel told KABC.

The two had gone missing Easter morning after setting out for a hike in the Cleveland National Forest, ABC news said.

Investigators are still trying to determine how the two teens got lost and separated in the wilderness.
