Climbers rescued from Mount Hood, said to be fine, being warmed up

GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. (AP) - Three climbers stranded on Mount
Hood after a fall were rescued Monday after spending the night amid
ferocious winds and blowing snow.

"Their condition is very good at this time," Russell Gubele,
coordinating communications for the rescue operation, told CNN.

"They were located in the area where their mountain locator units
suggested that they were, and we finally got some of our rescuers
down there to them. They are fine. They are being warmed up right
now and fed by our rescuers."

The three well-equipped climbers, two women and a man, fell off
a ledge Sunday.
