The Stranded Kim Family

Those who have been following the story of the stranded Kim family may be interested in the information in the Joe Duck blog. Don’t skip the comments section.

A video shot by a commenter there, Joe Dully, shows where the family is said to have made an unfortunate turn off a main road to a logging road that leads nowhere. Viewing it shows how easily that wrong turn could be made (keep in mind the video was shot during rescue operations, not during the snowstorm the Kims faced).

The way this story has captivated the nation, and its sad ending for the man involved, reminds me of the Floyd Collins story, which was front page news in newspapers coast-to-coast for the two weeks in 1925 Collins lay trapped in a cave.
