SLATINGTON, Pa. (AP) - Emergency crews have rescued two people who slid down a 65-foot slate bank while trespassing at an eastern Pennsylvania quarry.

Four people had been hiking in the quarry when two of them slid down a slate bank. Authorities say they had to use special equipment to pull them out of the water and that the two were lucky to escape with only a few bumps and bruises.
