Four Children Lost in Blizzard Save Two-Year-Old
The older boys acted smartly and selflessly to protect the youngest child.
“Four boys who went missing for more than a day during a blizzard in rural Alaska were found alive [last] Monday, and were resourceful when it came to protecting the youngest and most vulnerable to the elements.”
“The children, who range in age from 2 to 14, were found about 20 miles outside the village of Nunam Iqua, on Alaska’s west coast, a representative with Emmonak Search and Rescue told CNN by phone Monday night.”
“‘The kids are doing fine,’ the representative said. ‘I talked to the grandpa. They were cold and hungry.’”
“The boys reportedly huddled around the youngest boy. They dug a foot-deep hole in the snow and huddled themselves inside and positioned themselves in a way so that the 2-year-old wouldn’t be as exposed, according to Alaska Public Media.”
