(LOS ANGELES) — A first date went from adventurous to dangerous when the young pair got lost in the Angeles National Forest in Southern California.

The hikers had a map and a phone with them Friday but got lost in the trails, said the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. But they were able to find cell phone service and called the Altadena Sheriff’s station, which sent a rescue crew to airlift them.

There was no indication the hikers were injured, Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Saturday.

The pair was described as “young” but their ages weren’t released.
