3 rock climbers saved in complex rescue at Acadia

They were injured in fall

Two Boston-area rock climbers were plucked from the base of a rocky seaside cliff in Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine, during a harrowing rescue Sunday when one of the climbers and a guide fell off the cliffside, landing on the other climber, officials said.

After the fall, the injured climbers waited for more than three hours as rescuers worked feverishly to remove them without causing further injuries. Officials said the injuries appeared to be significant but not life-threatening.
