How The Issue Was Resolved

Someone noted that she could simply let out some air from her car tires to make room for the vehicle. Others echoed the same sentiment while a third user relayed that she did not have to let out all the air. They stated that a little air could be let out of the tires and it takes the car lower for her to drive out.

Clinton's car being stuck was not the only disastrous incident that recently occurred. Two 17-year-old boys were stranded for days last week in a snowstorm in California. The teen hikers were Cole White from Portland, Oregon, and Riley Ramirez from Cyprus, California.

Trek Gone Wrong

They were on a 10-day trek on the Pacific Crest Trail near the San Gorgonio Mountains. Unfortunately, a foot of snow dumped on the mountains left them stranded and unable to call for help.

Riley's Dad Contacted The Authorities

After losing contact for days, Riley's father, Cesar Ramirez called the San Bernardino county sheriff's office for help. The sheriff's office then launched a helicopter and located the boys in heavy snow.

The Boys Were Not Prepared For The Snowstorm

Scalise continued that the boys were prepared for a hike, but not for the huge amounts of snow. Cesar shared that the boys were avid hikers and were well-supplied with feet, snowshoes, and a tent for the trek.

Another Situation That Did Not Turn Fatal

A day before the teen hikers got stranded, there was another rescue operation in Inyo County. A driver went missing after leaving the community of Big Pine. He was last heard from on February 24 before he was found on March 2.
