A viewer wrote in with a question about the recent rescue of a family in the snow near Lovelock.
Donn Todd wrote asking if he's the only one to notice there were six passengers in a small Jeep with some young children requiring safety seats?
Donn asks are we that desperate for heroes that authorities used that term in this story?
He's concerned about the lack of attention to safety in the first place.
I checked with Pershing County Sheriff Richard Machado about this. I asked him whether he had any concerns about if the family followed the law in terms of safety in the car when they headed out into the snow.
Machado says he's not worried about that and he says no charges will be filed. First of all as far as child safety seats and the number of people in the car that's a violation an officer has to witness before he can cite someone.
Machado says he's just glad the family's okay and he's willing to call it a "wash" in this case considering everything they went through.
Finally, Sheriff Machado points out in Lovelock there are no movie theaters, and no bowling alleys. So when people are looking to recreate or get away, this is what they do. They head out into the wilderness as this family did.
