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.

What are the Catacombs?
The Catacombs of Paris, are a famous burial place in Paris, France that became a tomb near the end of the 18th century.

The Catacombs aren’t for the faint-hearted or the claustrophobic. Check out the video below.
