Rescue

The Kingman family survived a serious accident when their car went off an icy highway. A family dog ran from the wreck scene as two unknown men attempted to pull the family from the wreckage. The dog, April, was later found and reunited with the family nearly a week later. Now the family has discovered the identity of the men who helped them from the wreckage.
