Tourists stuck in a pile of snow for 20 hours

 A couple were stuck in their car in a pile of snow on the road east of Þingellir for twenty hours until a park warden found them. The woman is pregnant and was transferred to safety at the Þingvellir service centre. 

The couple, who are tourists, were driving a small jeep and had remained inside the vehicle since it got stuck early yesterday morning in the storm. They had food and sleeping bags but the woman was very cold. Somehow the couple had not succeeded in contacting anyone or aid. 

The husband remained in the car and the Road Administration sent help to dislodge it.
