Rescued Snowmobiler Recounts Agonizing Journey in UP of Mich.

Created: 01/29/2014 11:27 PM WDIO.com

BJ Jenney, 19-years-old, says he and his father, Ben Jenney, were exhausted after surviving 22-hours in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

The pair was snowmobiling near Silver City when their sleds became stuck off-trail.

The snow was waist-deep in some places but the two managed to trudge several miles before being rescued by snowshoers.

The Jenney's were dehydrated and frostbitten but are otherwise doing well.

They're planning to go snowmobiling again this weekend.
