>>> two hikers are safe after a dramatic rescue in the mountains near vancouver canada. a man and woman called for help when they got lost and realized one of them wasn't dressed warm enough for the temperatures. the terrain was too rugged to land so they had to be plucked out by a long line. one of the hikers probably wouldn't have made it through the night.
