Young Boys Aid in Rescue of Stranded Hikers

Aired June 21, 2000 - 2:55 p.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: Going to end on one we like here. Last hour we told you about, Fletcher and Parker Wold, the two Oregon boys who heard cries for help over their walkie-talkies, those cries coming from two climbers stranded on Mt. Hood in Oregon.

LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: Yes. And Fletcher said when he heard the climbers call, he could smell trouble in his bones. Seven-year- old Fletcher and his brother Parker, who's 5 years old, join us from Portland, Oregon.

There's Fletcher. Can you hear me, Fletcher?

FLETCHER WOLD, HEARD CLIMBER'S CALL: Yes.

WATERS: How do you smell trouble in your bones?

F. WOLD: What?

WATERS: How do you smell -- you said you smelled trouble in your bones. How do you do that?

F. WOLD: Well, I don't know.

WATERS: What did it sound like to you?

F. WOLD: Well, someone was screaming and said the phone -- screaming for help.

ALLEN: That's definitely trouble in your bones, don't you think, Lou?

Fletcher, we really think your story is amazing and how you were able to help these folks. We're watching video now. The people that came to rescue the hikers that were stranded because you knew something had gone wrong. What did you do when you realized you were hearing someone on your walkie-talkie, a plea for help?

F. WOLD: I called my dad saying I hear someone talking about Mt. Hood screaming on the phone for help. And then we had to go upstairs, tell the (UNINTELLIGIBLE) we have to go, and we went down the road back home.

WATERS: That's a pretty alert thing to do, Fletcher. Did your dad, when he bought -- as I understand you got these walkie-talkies as a Christmas present. Was this a matter of safety, that your dad wanted you to be safe and so you were aware of these walkie-talkies, what they could do?

F. WOLD: Yes.

ALLEN: Well, that's quite a thing you've done. How do you feel about the fact that you perhaps saved some people's lives?

F. WOLD: I feel great.

WATERS: You're going to get a lot of folks from television and radio calling you up and asking you to do interviews now?

F. WOLD: Yes.

ALLEN: Well, here you are.

WATERS: Yes. Well, what do you think about it?

F. WOLD: Feels great.

WATERS: Yes.

ALLEN: Is Parker there next to you?

F. WOLD: Yes.

ALLEN: I know Parker is 5 years old.

Parker, can we ask you, how are you feeling about what you and your brother have done helping these folks?

PARKER WOLD, HEARD CLIMBER'S CALL: Good.

ALLEN: Good.

WATERS: What are you playing with there, Parker? What's under the desk there?

ALLEN: It's a toy. I saw him. He sat there earlier, and it's far more interesting than you and me.

WATERS: Well congratulations, guys. There's a police officer who says that if it wasn't for you those hikers might still be up there waiting for help. You must feel good about that.

F. WOLD: Yes.

WATERS: Have you heard from those hikers?

F. WOLD: No, but we are going to the hospital and see them.

ALLEN: How about that. Well, good for you.

WATERS: We'll be traipsing along right after you.

F. WOLD: And then, after that we are going to Toys R Us and buy some rescue toys.

ALLEN: Hey.

WATERS: There you go. Reward time.

ALLEN: We're going to Toys R Us.

Fletcher, so nice to talk with you, and thanks so much for joining us and tell Parker the same.

F. WOLD: You're welcome.

ALLEN: All right.

WATERS: OK. Thanks for being here Parker and Fletcher.
