Stranded, disoriented python hunters rescued in Florida Everglades

Two stranded and disoriented python hunters were rescued by a helicopter Thursday in the Everglades of northern Broward County, Fla., authorities said.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Regional Everglades units responded just before 4 p.m. ET to a call about the snake hunters stranded about 15 miles west of U.S. 27 on the northern border of the county, spokesman Mike Jachles said in a statement.
Those units and Broward Sheriff's Office Air Rescue began searching, and about half an hour later the two men were spotted about two miles north of the L-5 Levee and 15 miles west of U.S. 27.
The helicopter landed in the Everglades and brought the wayward python hunters, ages 22 and 25, to the waiting rescue units about two miles away. The victims complained of light-headedness and weakness, and were suffering from heat exhaustion and dehydration, Jachles said.

2. Wait - the Pythons are winning ? We need to deploy more Python Hunters

Those pythons are a threat to our wholesome American way of life.
