COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The Columbia Fire Department says two 19-year-olds have been seriously injured after an 18-foot fall in a city park.

The men were transported to a Columbia hospital on Thursday after they fell near Hinkson Creek at Stephens Lake Park. They were found on rocks below a dam.

Authorities say it was hard to access the men because of their location. The rescue lasted about 90 minutes. They haven’t said what caused the fall or released the identities of the men.
