Hinsdale County, CO, Sheriff Justin Casey and his daughters have been released from the hospital after all three were injured in an avalanche that destroyed their home last week.
“They told me Justin's house had been hit by an avalanche and he couldn’t find his daughters," Hinsdale County Undersheriff Chris Kambish said. He rushed to the scene after getting the news.
“It had totally destroyed his house. There was nothing left," Kambish said.
The sheriff was able to pull himself out and find one of his daughters before help arrived, but there was still another daughter missing.
Multiple EMS personnel sifted through the debris, yelling and screaming. Finally, they found the other daughter buried in the snow.
A GoFundMe page has been established and deposits into Justin Casey's account are being accepted at any Community Banks of Colorado.
