HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — A sheriff’s office out of South Dakota is crediting a group of Hudsonville students and teachers for helping them rescue an injured hiker.

The woman was at the bottom of an area at Badlands National Park known as the Pinnacles when authorities came to her aid.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says the group from Hudsonville Public Schools responded by creating a human chain ladder stretching over two steep hills.

“We could not have carried the lady out without their help,” the sheriff’s office said.

Hudsonville Public Schools says it’s proud of the group, which the district identified as part of a summer science program.
