(Newser) – It's a happy ending for two teenage hikers who got lost in a California canyon on Easter Sunday. Rescuers today heard the yells of Kyndall Jack, 18, and found her clinging to the side of a cliff in Cleveland National Forest, reports ABC News. After being airlifted to safety, she was hospitalized with severe dehydration but is expected to recover. Her hiking partner, 19-year-old Nicholas Cendoya, was found disoriented and shoeless last night in thick brush, but he had no idea where Jack was. He, too, is hospitalized but should be out soon. They were both found in dense forest about a half-mile from their parked car, reports the Los Angeles Times.
