Reports indicate that 40 hikers were rescued after a mission trip went wrong. Fox News shared the details on March 8 about the La Salle University group of college students that had traveled to work with Habitat for Humanity. They went out hiking and were reported missing after they didn't return when expected.
The group of students from La Salle University was in Kentucky to spend their spring break working with Habitat for Humanity. The group was reported missing Thursday evening around 7 p.m., and luckily the 40 hikers were rescued around midnight. Apparently they waited a bit too long to return from their hiking excursion and became disoriented once it became dark.
One student was hospitalized Friday, but everybody else in the group is said to be is fine. The group of students are slated to return home to Philadelphia Saturday, and that plan has stayed on-track. Friends and family are grateful that the 40 hikers were rescued without any significant injuries or too long a time span of being missing in the mountains.
