2 Atlanta tourists found in dense Puerto Rico rainforest


SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – Authorities in Puerto Rico have found two tourists from Atlanta who were forced to spend the night in a rainforest after getting lost in El Yunque.

The spokesman for the emergency management agency says the two women were found in good condition Saturday morning. Jose Daniel Echevarria said that Kenisha Campbell and Venetta Harris declined a health evaluation. Both women are in their 30s.

He said they became disoriented while walking through the forest’s dense vegetation. Campbell had called 911 late Friday.

A couple of tourists and locals alike get lost every year in El Yunque’s maze of trails.
