Carson sheriff's deputies rescue stranded Swedish family
CARSON (KABC) -- A Swedish family of seven left stranded in Torrance because they couldn't afford a hotel room or food after a family emergency were rescued by Carson sheriff's deputies Friday.
Authorities chipped in to help after the two parents and five children were spotted walking up Sepulveda Boulevard around 4:30 a.m.
The family was in Southern California for a graduation when they were notified of a family emergency in Sweden.
They had to suddenly change their airline tickets and were subsequently left penniless without money for food or a hotel.
Deputies chipped in donations for the family and provided them with food, hotel accommodations, and transportation to LAX.
The family left LAX on a midday flight to Sweden Sunday.
