A family of six -- four children and two adults -- went missing over the weekend when they went in their black Jeep to play in the snow in the remote mountains of northwest Nevada. After two days of frantic searching, all six were found alive and well, suffering only from some minor dehydration. It's a true holiday miracle and one anyone who read about the story is relieved to hear. But how did they do it?
The answers are actually very surprising and also separate this story from others like it.
In fact, the father of two of the children is being credited with saving them. James Glanton, 34, insisted that they stay together, which was his first smart move. After their Jeep flipped and they were unable to restart the engine, Glanton and his girlfriend, Christina McIntee, 25, hunkered down with their two children, Evan and Chloe Glanton, as well as and Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee, a niece and nephew of McIntee's.
