California couple and their dog rescued from remote cabin

A California couple and their dog were rescued by helicopter this week from a remote cabin, where they spent two months trapped by snow.

The couple got stuck in their Sierra County cabin back on Dec. 6 when heavy snowfall and downed trees made it impossible for them to leave, authorities said.

They called for help on Tuesday when they started running out of supplies.

A California Highway Patrol rescue helicopter was brought in to assist when the Sierra County Sheriff’s Office was unable to access the remote property via road.

Footage taken from the helicopter showed mounds of snow completely covering the front of the cabin — almost reaching the roof.

A car parked outside also appeared to be covered in snow.

Two people were rescued from their snowed-in cabin that they have been trapped in since December, the California Highway Patrol said.

Authorities said the helicopter managed to land close to the cabin, despite “very strong winds.”

The couple and their dog were then flown to a safe location.
