Two teenagers have been rescued from the catacombs beneath Paris after getting lost in the pitch-black tunnels.
The two, aged 16 and 17, were taken to hospital and treated for hypothermia after being found by search teams and rescue dogs.
The boys were underground for three days.
The Catacombs are network of around 250 kilometres under Paris, most of which are not open to the general public.
No-one has ever got lost in the two-kilometers of tunnels open to the public.
Entering the other catacombs, outside of official areas, has been against the law since 1955.The temperature in the dark narrow passageways is about 15 degrees Celsius.

They also said that using antibacterial soap instead of normal soap didn’t make much difference either.
What made a difference was the time you took to wash your hands.  You should scrub your hands for at least 10 seconds.

Roasted Crickets

Humans have been eating insects for thousands of years and they are nutritious and a great source of protein.
The company has developed an insect cook book and a cricket-for-food farm is being planned for next year.
