The couple rescued them for almost two months after heavy snow trapped them in a hut in California.


The couple, who “snowed” in a hut in Northern California from early December, were rescued by helicopter on Tuesday after nearly two months of trials, officials said.

The California Highway Patrol’s Valley Division Air Operation received a call from the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office asking for help in rescuing the pair and their pet dog after supplies began to run short.

According to state officials, the couple have been stuck indoors since December 6, after trees fell and heavy snow trapped them.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the two and their dog were rescued after heavy snow was trapped in the cabin for nearly two months.  (CHP)

For remote areas in their cabins, and to avoid road blockades, CHP said helicopters were deployed to help rescue couples and their pets. They did not share the location of the cabin, but the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office, which first responded to the incident, is located in Downieville, California, on the North Fork of the Yuba River.
