Social Media Helps Rescue Couple Snowed In for 18 Days
A couple spent 18 days trapped in their snow-covered home, and a neighbor they didn’t know came to their rescue. For over two weeks, Mark and Cynthia Rutledge were trapped inside their Crestline, California, home. Powerful back-to-back winter storms have hit the town in the San Bernardino mountains, leaving many residents in the area stranded. It was an observant neighbor who realized that the Rutledge home’s shed had collapsed under the weight of the snow.
