Father's effort to save his family called 'superhuman'
December 7, 2006 3:57am CST
Hoping to save his stranded wife and children, James Kim decided Saturday to venture into the cold and unforgiving Oregon wilderness wearing only street clothes. It had been more than a week since Kim and his wife, Kati, had begun the drive home after a vacation in Oregon. They took a wrong turn and found themselves stranded in snow and lost with their young daughters on one of Oregon's treacherous backroads, which are rarely plowed during the winter. Their food and options were running out. What James Kim, 35, encountered searchers would later describe as rugged, steep, snowy terrain with sodden branches, slick rocks, downed trees and poison oak nestled between sheer cliffs. Despite those conditions, authorities said, he covered an estimated eight miles before rescuers on Wednesday found his lifeless body in a ravine. http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/12/06/missing.family/index.html Would u call this superman or just LOVE?
