From the Inside Edition website:
“It was a desperate rescue attempt as first responders tried to save a family of eight trapped in their car. In body cam footage obtained by Inside Edition, you can hear sirens in the background and the children screaming for help. The Owen family was returning from a camping trip in Sulphur Springs, Texas when dad lost control of the trailer they were towing filled with camping gear. By some miracle, all six children survived.”
