Rescue Underway For 3 Children Trapped In Wintergreen Gorge

Posted: Updated:
Several rescue crews are on the scene of dramatic rescue unfolding at the Wintergreen Gorge.
Around 4:45 Thursday night, Erie's 911 center got a call for several children struggling to get out of the gorge.

We've learned that 3 children were playing in the Wintergreen Gorge, and when they tried to climb back up, because of the rain water it's just too slick, and they're now stuck.
Several fire departments from east county, as well as the city of Erie are on the scene.
Rope rescue crews are also there as well.

Apparently, the children who are trapped in the gorge are not reportedly hurt, at least that's according to initial reports.

Tune in to WICU & WSEE tonight for a full report.
