California man nominated for Stolpa Award

The first Stolpa Award nomination for the winter of 2007-08 goes to Frederick Dominguez, who managed to get himself and three children lost in the snow for three days. The 38-year-old man and his teenaged kids, who went into the mountains to look for a Christmas tree, were found by rescuers this morning.

The Stolpa Award is named after the California man who, in the early 1990s, got stuck in the snow on a closed highway, thus managing to nearly kill not only himself but his whole family, before being rescued and somehow being proclaimed a hero and having a movie made about his misadventure. Only people who manage to get their whole family nearly killed out of stupidity are elligible for the Stolpa Award.
