A husband and wife and their three children were going to Grandma’s to celebrate Christmas when everything changed. The family had a fatal road accident, killing both parents. The three children remained trapped in the car for more than 55 hours, next to the dead bodies of their parents.

It was a terrifying scene that was stumbled upon by friends of the family, who found the three children stuck in a Land Rover, lying on their sides by the side of a lonely road. According to news from HLN, the five-year-old girl managed to win her one-year-old brother’s belt and set him free. With their two-year-old brother, the three children waited for 55 hours in the car, in minus 30 degrees.

The three children were severely dehydrated and were still in the car when help arrived. They were immediately transferred to Perth Children’s Hospital.

The circumstances of the tragic accident, where the three children lost their parents, Jake Day, 28, and Cindy Braddock, 25, are still unknown. For his part, Bruce Browning, Kondinin municipal councilor, does not understand how no one could see the damaged car for such a long time: “Hundreds of cars passed by during this period and the car was not very far from the road, so it is unbelievable that no one came to help”.

Michael Read, the father’s cousin, described his niece, a five-year-old girl, as a hero. “If he hadn’t freed his brother, he wouldn’t be with us today,” he said.
