ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - The four men rescued from the Republic Steel Corp. quarry last week have been slapped with fines.

Amir Elkhatib, Muhamid Salieman, Mah Mud Sulieman, Adam Abukhater have been fined $100 each.

This, after rescue crews were called to the Elyria quarry last Tuesday afternoon for a man trapped.

Upon arrival, officers located all four men stranded on the edge of a cliff observed in the corner of the quarries.

EFD and Life Care arrived on scene and started to assemble repealing gear to descend to the men.

All were successfully extracted. Elkhatib was taken to the hospital, but was treated and released.
