Stuck with four kids in the vehicle

Saturday, January 27th, 2024, at 8:26 p.m. (CT), we received a request for help with an offroad recovery in Texas near Denton and close to the Elm Fork Trinity River. The requester, Chance Johnson, submitted the following information: “I have a 4 month year old with me along with 3 other kids a 3, 7 and 10 year old. Just got stuck about 6inchea in the rear passenger side I have a tow strap just need a boost to get out. Please and thank you / I’m with the vehicle.

Once we verified all the information, we sent the request to local volunteers. Within the hour, we had a few volunteers involved. Rebecca Sparks, who had a friend nearby in a yellow jeep trying to get to where the stuck vehicle was, and also David Torres, who was 50 minutes away but willing to assist.

Later we learned there were two vehicles stuck. By midnight, Rebecca closed the request and announced every vehicle was recovered.

We appreciate the help from Rebecca, her friend, and David; you guys are amazing.
