It’s been a tough few days for the families of the Magnolia teens who were rescued from an ice cave collapse at Snoqualmie Pass on Friday.
Their mothers met with reporters this morning outside Harborview where their sons are recovering and took the chance to say thank you to rescuers who worked for five hours to free their sons.
Alec Corbett, 17 and Allesandro Gelmini, 14 are Magnolia neighbors who attend Bishop Blanchet High School. Both boys underwent back surgery over the weekend and Gelmini is in surgery again today for leg fractures. Their parents say they are very grateful that both boys are expected to recover.
It will be awhile before the boys are back to normal and it looks like they will miss the start of school but the moms say it is nothng short of a miracle that they are alive. View the interview here.
