The teens had gone for a hike when they started to slip, they called 9-1-1 around 4 p.m.

The boys, in grade 8 and 9, were uninjured, but they were dehydrated. Family quickly whisked the two boys away once rescuers brought them down to the base of Mt. Boucherie.

Two boys are awaiting rescue from the cliffs of Mount Boucherie behind the Royal LePage Arena.

An eight member high angle rescue team is on site preparing to embark towards the trapped boys.

Mt. Boucherie is a popular hiking destination, although it is unknown how the two youths became stuck on the cliff.

Around 100 people, who were attending a hockey game at the arena, are gathered watching the rescue.
