California in brief / PARADISE

Trees pile up for rescued family

December 24, 2007|Associated Press

A family that was stranded in the snowy mountains of Northern California while hunting for a Christmas tree may now need help hanging tinsel.

Donated Christmas trees have arrived at the family home since Frederick Dominguez, 38, and his three children were rescued Wednesday.

Co-workers say at least four donated trees have arrived at the Paradise pest control company where Dominguez works following the three-night ordeal.

Fifteen-year-old Alexis Dominguez was hospitalized for pain in her toes from minor frostbite but was released Saturday.

A helicopter crew making its last pass spotted the family as a storm began dumping yet more snow on the mountain range about 100 miles north of Sacramento.
