Injured hikers rescued from caldera of Crater Lake

Two injured hikers were rescued after spending the night in the caldera of Crater Lake in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon. The pair fell approximately 250 feet within the 1200-foot caldera and were spotted by the helicopter rescue team at around 9:30 p.m., but could not be rescued until the next morning due to the terrain and ending daylight.
