Chaperones at St. David Catholic Secondary School near Waterloo, Ontario in Canada had 15 of its teenagers go missing on a school trip intended to teach "survival and backcountry camping" in a national park. Thankfully, the children were found Friday morning — but they were still missing for about 12 hours. Which... what?
"Ontario Provincial Police were searching for the group of teens, between 16 and 17-years-old, after they were separated from the main hiking group around 5 p.m. yesterday," reported Canada's CBC News, which updated their story to read that the high-schoolers were found around 5 a.m. this morning.
But maybe they're built sturdier and steelier up there in Canada. Ontario Provincial Police said there was nothing to worry about the whole time, as CBC News reported:
OPP [said] they have been advised there are no concerns about the teenagers staying in the wilderness overnight because the school trip is focused on survival and backcountry camping.
All the children were found, and there were no reports of any injuries.
