Two Groups of Hikers get Stranded on Mountain in Wildlife Refuge

Posted: Updated:

COMANCHE COUNTY, Okla. - A scary situation in the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge as two, separate groups of hikers get stranded on opposite sides of Elk Mountain as the sun set.

Two men got stuck on the south side of the mountain on a cliff face while hiking.

The Lawton Fire Department Tactical Team was still working late Sunday night to rescue the two men by repelling down the mountain.

The terrain and their location proved to be quite difficult for the firefighters.

The two men are believed to have no injuries.

However, that is not the case for the woman stranded on the north side of the mountain.

When rescuers were able to get to her, they determined that she had a broken ankle.

They were able to get her safely off the mountain just before 7 p.m. Sunday.

You can count on 7news to keep you updated on the rescue efforts.
