Crew Rescues Family From SUV Trapped in Snow Bank in California

San Bernardino County Fire said it deployed crew in a snowcat to rescue a family of six trapped in their SUV in snow bank in Wrightwood, California, on November 28.

San Bernardino County Fire said the family had parked on the side of a road near a local ski resort in the San Gabriel Mountains and the rapid snow accumulation trapped their SUV in “several feet of snow.” The agency said their snowcat was the only vehicle able to reach the family on the “completely unplowed highway.”

“No injuries were found and all members of the family, which included four children, were doing well, aside from being cold. Everybody was loaded into the snowcat including the dad’s wheel chair. “The family was dropped off at Mountain High where they could get warm and get some hot cocoa for the kids at the lodge,” said San Bernardino County Fire in their post on Facebook.
