Hikers Rescued After Six Days in Snow

From Times Wire Reports

Two hikers from Oregon were rescued by helicopter Wednesday after heavy snow stranded them for six days on the side of a rugged mountain.

Teri Smith, 35, and Chris Hoffman, 36, had set out for a five-day trek. The forecast called for rain, so they left their snowshoes behind.

When a snowstorm blew in last Thursday, dumping 4 feet, they hunkered down and spelled "SOS" in the snow.
