COTTONWOOD, Ariz. – A man who had been trapped inside his SUV three days after a crash is recovering thanks to a family out on a picnic.

Josh Schreiner was out on a picnic with his family in Arizona Friday when his daughter spotted a crumpled SUV sitting at the bottom of a hill. They stopped to take some photos.

“There’s a good possibility that if my daughter hadn’t of seen it, maybe we would have drove by too because it’s kind of tucked down below,” said Schreiner told KSAZ.

The car looked out-of-place, so they decided to check it out just in case. That’s when they found a man sitting inside the damaged car.

“He was in bad shaple,” saidfox new Josh Schreiner’s father, Dale Schreiner, who was out with his family on the picnic. “I asked him if anyone was with him, he said no and I asked him how long has he been there and he said 3 days. He had you know, he was covered with bites and everything else.”

The family called 911, and paramedics took him to the hospital. He is now recovering from his injuries.

The Schreiners says they learned a valuable lesson Friday.

“Don’t ever live your life on a wonder. If you think, hey it looks like there could be someone down there check it out, go down there and take a look at it.”
