California couple rescued from cabin after being snowed in for two months

A couple and their dog were rescued from a remote cabin in Northern California after being snowed in for about two months.

After a heavy snowfall on December 6, the couple became trapped inside the Sierra Nevada cabin when downed trees and feet of snow made it impossible to exit. The two remained indoors until this week, when they began to run out of supplies and called for help.

The California Highway Patrol’s Valley Division Air Operations received a call for help on Tuesday and a CHP helicopter was deployed to respond. In spite of heavy winds that day,the helicopter was able to land near the cabin. The couple and dog were rescued and taken to a safe location by Sierra County deputies.

The exact location of the cabin and names of the couple have not been released. According to authorities, the couple attempted to leave the area by car but were unable to drive in the snowy conditions.
