What a tragedy: Father dies trying to save family

Most of us in the US have heard about it on the news and have followed the search for the family that went missing while returning home after Thanksgiving. The story eventually unfolded today and its so sad. After being stranded and waiting for a week, James Kim, the dad, felt he had no choice but to go and find help. He eventually trekked 10.24 miles where he collapsed and died of hypothermia. The rest of this report is here. Fortunately, his young family was found alive. If only he had waited a little bit longer...But its completely understandable. He had no choice. He had a 7 month old baby and 4 year old daughter with no food and with the weather bound to get worse. Such a tragedy, and what a brave man....
