This weekend was a dangerous one for people doing outdoor activities.
Overnight, search crews located two missing hikers in New Market near the Flint River. We're still working to get the identity of a man who died after falling off a cliff at Buck's Pocket State Park. Apparently, the 35 year old man fell while hiking with four other people. Also, a Huntsville woman told police she was attacked while hiking. The victim told officers the man approached her on the walking trail at Mountain Gap Road, assaulted her and then ran. We'll break down the latest behind these investigations at 5:00 & 6:00 on WAFF 48 News Today.
This morning, two children are suffering from second and third degree burns and now their parents are behind bars.
