Three teenage boys have been rescued after spending hours trapped in a swamp near Wompatuck State Park.
The father of one of the teens said the boys headed to the swamp in Norwell late Tuesday afternoon, saying they were going for a walk. Marc Holler says he went looking for the teens when they didn’t return.
He said that he had almost given up searching when he heard a cry for help. Rescuers aided by a police air wing located the boys around 9:30 p.m.
The boys were then pulled out of the waist-high water.
Shortly after 11:00 p.m., the boys were taken by ambulance to South Shore Hospital to be checked out.
Rescuers say the teens might have hypothermia or frostbite, but no life-threatening injuries.
