ANCHORAGE - Two hikers have been rescued in the Alaska wilderness after visiting the bus made famous in the Sean Penn-directed movie "Into the Wild."
Troopers said the two were not prepared for an extended hike, with only street clothes and a little food.
The "magic bus" gained fame after a young adventurer Christopher McCandless hiked out to it and died in an adventure chronicled in "Into the Wild."
The hikers were identified as 19-year-old Donald Carroll from Illinois and 21-year-old Jia Long He from China.
The Anchorage Daily News reported they were cold and wet after being rescued by helicopter Monday, but OK.
