Rescue teams save 9 on Mount McLoughlin

MEDFORD, OR (AP) -

Jackson County search crews rescued nine hikers lost on Mount McLoughlin this weekend.

Sheriff Mike Winters says the hikers were in three separate groups. Rescuers found two groups of four late Saturday, while another man was found Sunday after spending the night on the mountain.

None of the hikers was injured.

Winters told the Mail Tribune (http://is.gd/LgqxQo ) that hikers get fooled by the good weather this time of the year and forget sunset comes quickly.
