PROVO — Three people had to be rescued from Rock Canyon early Monday.
Provo police were notified late Sunday night of three hikers who were stranded in the canyon. The three had a cell phone and were able to call one of the victim's mothers, according to police. She then called 911.
When officers arrived, they were able to get in contact with one of the climbers using a cell phone and had him shine a light so rescuers could pinpoint their location.
Rescue crews were able to use the Department of Public Safety's helicopter to get to the three hikers.
No injuries were reported.
