(WTVM) -

A dramatic rescue occurred at Stone Mountain for two teenage hikers who wandered into a restricted area.

The 17 and 18 year old were on the back side of the mountain when they slid down a pipe and tumbled several hundred feet down the mountain. Police say the area where the teens fell has signs restricting the public and it's fenced off at the top.

The teens were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. No word on their condition just yet.
