An overnight camping outing nearly turned tragic for three area teenagers after rising water traps them in Wintergreen Gorge.
Caity Stile, Ellie Cousins and Jeff Carr were unable to make it back to dry land after waking up around 10:30.
They tried to make it across the creek and got stranded on a plateau just inches above the rising water.
