Two dads and their three kids have survived a lengthy ordeal in the Idaho wilderness after the car got stuck in a snowbank over the weekend.
John Julian and his children, Isaac and Samantha, and William Murkle and daughter, Megun, slept in the stranded SUV overnight Saturday and walked about 19 miles in the snow Sunday to look for help, according to an Idaho Statesman report. Finally, the group happened upon a cabin in Prairie, where they were able to call their families.
Nobody in the group sustained any injury, the report also said.
The two dads took their kids for a drive and possibly a hike at about 2 p.m. Saturday and were expected to return by 5 p.m., KMVT-TV reports. When they didn't return at that time, authorities were alerted and deputies began to search an area where they might have been headed.
"It was just a long journey, but fun and miserable," 10-year-old Megun Murkle told NWCN.com. "I was also thinking, we can do this, we can do this, I just kept saying that in my head and we did it."
Foul play is not suspected in the event, the KMVT report also mentioned.
