Two hikers have been rescued from Tarrywile Park in Danbury. 

The Danbury Fire Department was called to the park at the end of a nice day on a report that two hikers were lost in the woods and tired.  They deployed their Polaris Ranger and, with the aid of technology, dispatchers were able to place a pin on their mobile mapping system which firefighter took into the woods with them. 

Fire officials say it was a matter of connecting the dots to locate the lost hikers.  The lost hikers were found in 24 minutes and given a lift to their car back at the Mansion. 

Fire officials remind park goers to carry a well charged cell phone so that if the need arrives to call for help, your phone is ready to assist in the rescue.
