Firefighters Called Out For Cliff Rescue

Three boys are safe after getting stuck on the edge of a cliff in freezing cold temperatures.

They were rescued Wednesday night in Breathitt County, near Highway 15 in Jackson.

The three, ages 10, 15, and 21, were walking along a trail when they slipped off a ledge. The 21-year- old called police for help using a cell phone.

Officials had to shutdown Highway 15 in order to bring in a ladder truck to get to the boys.

All three were taken to a hospital to be checked out, but they are doing just fine.
