CHP copter saves teens from soaring Sierra cliff

<![CDATA[SIERRA CITY, Calif. (AP) -- Two stranded teenage boys were plucked off a peak at an elevation of more than 8,000 feet by a California Highway Patrol helicopter as it was rocked by gusty winds. The boys had been climbing along a steep ridge before becoming stuck on a tiny plateau in the Sierra Nevada. Sixteen-year-old Austin Deschler tells KXTV that he and a 17-year-old friend had climbed to the spot Saturday for a picture without realizing they couldn't make it down. Hikers spotted them and called 911. In a dramatic rescue captured on video (on.news10.net/1aqMN8I), the helicopter had nowhere to land so had to lower a harness. It took multiple tries because of winds over 20 mph, but eventually the boys grabbed the hook and were hoisted to safety. Deschler called the rescue "terrifying."
