Three boy scouts and their two leaders had to be rescued Saturday night in Eddington.

The Maine Warden Service says the group mistakenly went off the trail on a hike between Camp Roosevelt and Black Cap Mountain…

The scouts and leaders got stranded to a point where they could not go up or down.

It all began around 7:30 Saturday night, when the scout leaders went looking for the boys after they didn’t return from a hike.

They found them but also became stranded. that’s when the group called 9-1-1

Professional climbers lowered the scouts to safety.

No one needed medical treatment for anything except being cold.
