Several rescue crews respond for a dramatic rescue 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 was just too slick, and they got stuck.
Several fire departments from east county, as well as the city of Erie responded to the scene to get the children out.
Rope rescue crews were also there.
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.
