NB family safe and sound after UTV broke down in wooded area

A family of three is safe after being rescued from a wooded area in southwestern New Brunswick.

Mounties say they received a 911 call around 11 p.m. Monday after the family's utility-terrain vehicle broke down near Utopia.

Police say there was concern as the overnight temperature was forecast to drop well below freezing.

The man, woman and boy were found walking along a trail in a remote area near Route 585 about five hours later.
