Three Wisconsin Sisters Rescued


     Three Wisconsin sisters who were rescued after getting lost hiking in Wyoming say faith and camping experiences helped them survive.

     The sisters and their parents appeared in public for the first time today.  The sisters got lost in a remote area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest.   They were rescued by a helicopter yesterday after going backpacking July first.

     They say their faith in God helped them make it through. “There’s a lot of praying and a lot of trust in Him and looking for signs and little things like a rainbow to show you that, you know, God’s really taking care of you.”

     The sisters say outdoor experience and planning made them better prepared for their unexpected situation. Staying together, not moving from their location and having proper clothing aided in their survival.
