Transcript for Twin 4-year-olds rescue themselves after father’s car crashes
Next tonight, a remarkable story of survival. The twin 4-year-old girls in a car crash with their father and what they did to survive. Here's Matt Gutman. Reporter: At first, rescuers couldn't believe those tiny girls had done it. Engine 470 advise, there are two little girls with a witness. They're telling the other adult their dad was bleeding. Reporter: Twin 4-year-olds Rosaline and Aurora Simmons in their father Corey's car outside of Seattle when their vehicle went down an embankment, killing Corey. Down a ditch, it's a sedan, hard to see. The children must have climbed up. Reporter: Police say they unbuckled themselves, crawled through the shattered glass and past their bleeding father who had not been wearing a seatbelt. Then climbed up that 100-foot ravine. A good samaritan stopping, comforting them and dialing 911. They're so brave. One woke up in the middle of the night having some nightmares. Reporter: The family now hopes they can preserve Corey's memory. We're going to keep Corey alive for the little girls because I'm afraid they're going to forget him. Reporter: David, police tell Mel that father died on impact, but he had put both of those girls into booster seats and buckled them up. A major reason that both of them escaped, largely unscathed. David? All right, Matt, thank you.
