“I was screaming yelling can you see me!! She said yes I see you!,” says Mike Leum, .A. Co. Sheriff Search and Rescue.

Video shows rescuers from the l.A. County Sheriff’s Department hover over 18 year old Kyndall Jack.

“She was clinging to a ledge on a cliff side going on and out of consciousness,” says Jim Moss, L.A. Co. Sheriff Search and Rescue.

After 4 gut wrenching days and nights for friends and family.

“We have confirmed we have Kyndall. She’s been rescued. She’s alive,” Lt. Jason Park, OC Sheriff’s Department.

They found Kyndall after a hiker heard a woman screaming for help. She was found in a lot of pain, dehydrated, and weak.

“She was huddled in fetal position and asked what year it was,” says Fred Wenzel, L.A. Co. Sheriff’s Department.

Kyndall was rescued adjacent to where her friend 19 year old Nicholas Cendoya, had been rescued the night before.

Loved ones rejoiced when they heard their Nicholas was alive and well.

This team from the Orange County Fire Authority found Nicholas…and say the conditions made this search particularly challenging.

Rescue crews say one moment they will never forget… telling family members Kyndall was alive.

“They cried …it was worth it,” Jon Muir, OC Fire Authority.
