Seventeen cold and hungry hikers were rescued by helicopter Sunday morning after they had been stranded overnight on a dangerous ridge overlooking Big Tujunga Dam in the Angeles National Forest. The hikers, members of the Chinese Outdoor Club of Monterey Park, used flashlights to signal the nine-member ground rescue team to the remote site after the rescuers had trudged five hours through thick brush to reach them.

Mick Cordich, 21, had tried to climb a sheer, 150-foot rock face in the San Gabriel Mountains, 20 miles north of Azusa. Halfway up, the handholds petered out. He couldn't go up, he couldn't go down. Clad only in bathing trunks and sneakers, he was cold and tired. And stuck. James Lawrence, 49, and Velma Jean Gilbert, 40, had been riding a motorcycle on California 138 at the remote eastern end of the Antelope Valley when a car in front of them suddenly attempted a U-turn.
