Family rescued from woods

A family of three was rescued from the woods near Lake Utopia early yesterday.

RCMP say the couple and their young son got stranded when their vehicle broke down in a heavily-wooded area. The driver called 911 around 11:00 Tuesday night for help. Ground search and rescue teams were called out.

The man, woman and boy under 10 were found around 4:00 in the morning walking along a trail in a very remote area near route 785. None of them were hurt…just a little cold and thankful at being found.
