SANTA FE, N.M., (AP) — Emergency crews early Thursday rescued two young snowboarders who got stuck after going off the path at a ski area in mountains near Santa Fe.

The two 15-year-old boys got stuck in the Ski Santa Fe basin Wednesday evening, prompting a call to police for help, KOAT-TV reported.

Crews hindered by darkness and rough terrain searched for the boys, locating them and taking them down from the mountain just after midnight.

The boys were released to their parents after being examined by medical personnel.
