ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) - A northeast Ohio man pulled his ten-year-old daughter out of a collapsed tunnel of snow yesterday and revived her.
Robert VanHoose says a boy from the neighborhood ran to his house in Eaton Township, near Elyria, to tell him that his daughter Lanetta was stuck in the snow.
The girl went headfirst into a tunnel she dug in a pile of snow, but then the tunnel collapsed.
VanHoose says he ran outside and saw only the girl's feet and a shovel. He says he started digging, then grabbed her legs and pulled. The girl had turned blue and was unresponsive, so he gave her mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
