FAIRBANKS- A second group of hikers have been rescued after trying to reach an abandoned city bus in the Alaska wilderness, which was made famous by a book and move.

Three hikers had to be airlifted out of the area near Denali National Park, one with a minor leg injury.

In May, three German hikers were rescued.

The bus has been the source of multiple similar rescues since it was made famous, first by Jon Krakauer's book "Into the Wild" published in 1996 and then by Sean Penn's 2007 film, both of which chronicled the life and death of Chris McCandless. He hiked into the Alaska wilderness in April 1992 and spent the summer living in the bus. He was found dead four months later.
