PARSONS, W.Va. (AP) - A YMCA camp official says two people remain hospitalized following a rock ledge collapse that injured five near the camp in Tucker County.

Camp Horseshoe director David Cooper said Sunday that four campers and a staff member were taking a photo on the ledge when it collapsed on Friday.

Cooper says three of the injured were treated and released. He didn’t have details about the injuries but said none were life-threatening.

The ledge is along Horseshoe Run about a quarter mile from Camp Horseshoe. Cooper says taking a photo on the ledge is a tradition at the weeklong camp for high school students.
