Herdsmen lost contact in the snowstorm, and people

"My brother and a substitute herder lost their way when they were driving cattle and sheep across the field. They have lost contact for two days. Can you help find it?" At 22:38 on March 22, Nurmuhamati Hasimanhash, a villager in Baitingqi Village, Dorat Township, Tori County, asked the village committee for help.

In March, the herdsmen in Dorat Township began to transfer. From March 22 to 25, affected by the continuous snowstorm, the snow was deep in the mountains of Toli County, and the transition was extremely difficult.

After receiving the phone call, the village cadres of Baitingqi Village immediately discussed the rescue plan, and decided that the director of the village committee, Ganati Tieliubuick, and the police officer of Dorat Police Station of Toli County Public Security Bureau, Saenrati Tolesh, would lead several villagers to search first.

Ganati launched a rescue call in the villagers' WeChat group, and selected several villagers who were familiar with the terrain and had good physical fitness from the villagers who took the initiative to register.

Due to the limited human and material resources of the village committee, Ganati explained the current difficulties in the villagers' WeChat group, and the villagers responded positively and made suggestions together.

"We can't go to the rescue, but we can donate money." The women in the village gave generously. In an instant, a "red envelope rain" began to fall in the WeChat group, and everyone donated 6100 yuan to refuel the vehicles of rescue workers and buy dry food.

At about 3:00 a.m. on March 23, the Canartians set out.

At 9:00 and 10:00 on March 23, two groups of rescue forces set out successively with the rescue materials raised.

It was snowy and windy on the way, the temperature dropped to minus 20 ℃, and the visibility was less than 20 meters. The car gets stuck in the snow from time to time, and the horse is struggling in the thick snow......

Hungry and gnawing Nang, thirsty and drinking iced yogurt, tired and taking turns to squint on the bus... Everyone has only one idea in mind - find the lost herdsman quickly.

Everything comes to him who waits. After 32 hours of searching, at 11:18 on March 24, rescuers finally found two herdsmen.

The two people huddled together and were almost frozen. The rescuers quickly helped the two people into the car.

It turned out that the two people were lost in the snowstorm, hungry and cold, and lived on snow for three days and three nights. But they have a belief: persist, someone will come to rescue!

"If you hadn't come in time for such a big snowstorm, we would have died. Thank you so much!" After being rescued, the herdsman said with emotion.
