NORWELL, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Rescue crews in Norwell located three teens that went missing Tuesday evening.

Fire officials in Norwell said the three 14-year-olds were reported missing at about 7 p.m. after going into an area of Wompatuck State Park along School Street and Mt. Blue Road around 5 p.m.

Fire crews from Norwell as well as a state police helicopter searched for the teens before finding them at about 9:45 p.m. 

Officials said crews had trouble reaching the teens because they were in waist- to shoulder-deep water.

Crews were eventually able to lead the teens out of the swamp. According to the Boston Herald, the teenagers were OK, but were taken to the hospital to be checked out for hypothermia and frostbite.
