Guam - Four people were taken to Naval Hospital this morning after being stranded at Sigua Falls for nearly ten hours. According to Guam Fire Department spokesperson Phil Camacho, rescue units got the 911 call at 9:54 pm last night that four hikers were stranded at Sigua Falls. The Coast Guard was called in to assist and emergency responders had an open line of communication with the group.

The rescue commander had to temporarily suspend the search around 4 this morning until daylight. But Camacho says units remained on scene despite the terrain, overgrown vegetation and poor visibility making it difficult to access the hikers. At 7am, rescue units reached the hikers and a helicopter transported the group to Naval Hospital in Agana Heights. No injuries were reported.
