PERU, Vermont — Vermont authorities say two New Jersey men are safe after getting stranded in deep snow while hiking in the Green Mountain National Forest.

State police say 34-year-old Nikolas Brown called 911 on Tuesday evening to report that he and his friend, 28-year-old Alan Parkell, were stranded on the Long Trail in Peru, Vermont. The men, both from Pennsville, New Jersey, were stuck in waist-deep snow and unable to continue hiking.

Brown was able to provide GPS coordinates of their location, and a team of rescuers from several agencies found the hikers and helped them out of the woods. Neither was injured.
