Officials said the group of Hungarian tourists six men, four women and a 13-year-old boy called for help as night fell yesterday after they were unable to descend from the Piatra Craiului mountain range near the city of Brasov.

Local police spokesman Ciprian Aldea said it took rescue teams 12 hours to locate, reach and save the group who got trapped on a rocky mountain ledge.

The group was transported by bus today to the mountain hut where they were staying.
