Is Building a Snow Fort Safe?

By: Leilani Nebot

Two boys in New York were trapped under a seven-foot mound of snow for more than four hours before they were rescued November 26, 2014 by rescue workers.


The two boys were building a fort and the fort crashed down. A snow plow, unaware that the boys were building a fort, plowed more snow on top of the two boys.


The police say two NY boys building a snow fort were trapped under a mound of powder for hours after being buried by a snow plow. The boys missed their 10:00pm curfew and after checking the neighborhood, their parents called the police right before midnight.
