2nd lost hiker rescued from Calif. forest

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. (AP) — Rescuers say a young woman lost in the rugged Southern California wilderness for five days was so exhausted and disoriented that it was unlikely she could have survived much more than another day.

Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Jim Moss says Kyndall Jack was having difficulty breathing when she was found Thursday.

Although the 18-year-old had been able to lead rescuers to her location by shouting to them, she didn't know the day of the week or how she had gotten to a rocky outcropping halfway up a steep ravine.

Jack and her 19-year-old friend Nicolas Cendoya got lost in the Cleveland National Forest during a day hike on Sunday.

Cendoya was found in similar condition on Wednesday.

Both are expected to survive.
