LAS VEGAS (AP) - More than 200 rescuers feared for the worst when a couple and four children vanished this week in the bitterly cold Nevada wilderness. But two days after their ill-fated trip to play in the snow Sunday, the family was found in good condition. By Wednesday, the mother and a child were released from the hospital.
Authorities said the family survived temperatures of 16 degrees below zero with warm clothes and ingenuity - they started a campfire and warmed rocks to capture heat.
