Two teenage boys were rescued Sunday night after getting lost on Mt. Juneau as the temperature dropped.
According to an online post from Alaska State Troopers, a 17-year-old from Juneau and a 16-year-old from Switzerland used a cell phone to call for help at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday. The boys said they were not prepared for the weather and were already very cold and disoriented. Temperatures in the area were in the mid-20s.
Troopers say the incident is a good reminder to bring proper gear and emergency devices for all outdoor conditions.
