They were then stuck in the snow for at least forty–five minutes before rescue crews arrived. Crews say the boys were unconscious and had no pulse when they were found.

They were airlifted to the hospital while emergency crews performed CPR.

"It appears that the boys got too close to the edge that they went off the side and over a cornice and then possibly they snow as part of the cornice fell on top of them."

Police haven't released the names of the boys or their current condition.
