He was buried for about two hours before rescuers found him Friday night in an air pocket created by a fallen chimney in their house at the base of Mount Jumbo.

Eight-year-old Phoenix Scoles-Coburn was buried in the snow for about an hour. He was released from the hospital Sunday.

Phoenix’s 10-year-old sister, Coral, also was outside playing when the slide hit at 4 p.m. Friday, but she was able to dig herself out of the snow.
