Mourners, funeral home workers, become trapped on mountain due to ice

Some people burying a loved one became stranded Tuesday afternoon in Perry County.

Family members and some funeral home workers could not get off a mountain due to icy roads after a burial on a mountaintop cemetery in Maces Creek.

After being stuck for several hours, they were finally able to come off the mountain after the county brought in gravel to make the road safe.

Everyone is OK.
