    Oish, this is terrible. I hope they find these boys very soon, safe and sound.
    My son is in a traveling camp in Colorado and 2 boys slipped on the ice and broke bones and had to be airlifted to a nearby trauma center.
    And I always thought hiking is, like, THE safest thing you can do.
    Besuros Tovos, BimHaira.

    Let’s divide up tehillim. I have a group here doing day 1 through and including day 9

  • Lkwdmom says:

    10, 11

  • Yitzy says:

    They were found BH!

  • My2Cents says:

    Under-estimating danger is what makes things dangerous. If a person goes hiking they should have a GPS, 2 Way radio, dress appropriately and research the area first.

    If you are part of a group and are relying on one person in the group who has a GPS or is familiar with the trail, than never stray from that group.

    If you are hiking in a place that has ice, you should find out in advance that their is ice and wear appropriate footwear and gear.

    There have been enough stories with people getting lost or worse on hikes that this should not come as a surprise.

  • Moshe Grama says:

    Please continue to say tehillim. They are still stuck on the Rock in the middle of high rapids while rescue is figuring out a way to get them to shore

  • Amil Zola says:

    Before going out on ‘hikes’ learn to read a map,carry a compass and rent a locator beacon at a local sporting goods store.

  • Who is taking responsibility says:

    Someone needs to be held responsible for this

    All hiking fun is not worth One yiddish life!
    Why are camps going hiking when there is the possibility that kids get lost? And how in the world did they end up in the water?

    Camps must have training, in addition to the proper equipment including GPS tracking… and enough trained staff so kids don’t get lost.

    People need to be held responsible for last night, NO EXCUSE!
